Another Road Trip, Old Mackenzie Hwy

We went on the old Mackenzie Hwy. on Aug 16th. First day it was open this summer. It usually opens in May or June. Stopped at a little lake/campground on the east side of the summit. Very pretty, I thought I would take a picture, so walked to the end of the lake, through some grass. Boy, did I stir-up some mesquitos, fastest I have moved in a long time that was not at a run. By the time I got in the car I had 7 bites. Decided we would just go on to the Dee Wright Observatory. Here are some pictures. Some inside, looking out square holes or windows, at the surrounding mountains and a few pictures from the outside.
