Balsam Lake & Graham Mountains – 10/18/14

The Crew took a nice Fall hike up Balsam Lake and Graham Mountains. We where fortunate enough to see a mature bald eagle fishing in the stream. The day started of cloudy with intermittent showers. When we got to the top of Graham the rain picked up for a bit, but the wind was blowing and the rain shortly past. After eating lunch we hike over to Balsam Lake and checked out the mini museum in the ranger cabin and got to check the views from the fire tower. All in all another great day.
