We did have company there: another Dad, with his seven-year-old daughter, who we sat and chatted with for 30 or 45 minutes as we all enjoyed the sunshine, the water, and the mountains. This was a beautiful little spot, with a feeling of being miles away from anyone else. It's not quite the other end of Lake McDonald, but it feels miles away from the crowds at Apgar at the lake's southern tip. The hiking is easy, and the reward is high. Note: Heading out this way on the Camas Road is the first step toward Polebridge, the last outpost before Canada on the western side. Despite the road sign displayed at left, it's a pretty easy drive. If you're looking for real solitude, and great baked goods, give it a shot.
