Kane Lake in the Pioneer Range of Idaho

Over Labor Day we repeated our annual trek to the nicest lake I know of in Idaho - Kane Lake.  Its only 3.5 miles, but its uphill, rocky and an unmaintained trail.  The views from camp at Kane lake are unsurpassed in Idaho.

 This is the view looking back down the valley as one nears the lake.  The trail is unmaintained, and uphill, but at 3.5 miles its not very far to hike in.

 This is the first view you see of the lake.  There is a waterfall that comes down the cliff on the opposite side of the lake, and another waterfall where the inlet to the lake cascades down from the basin above.
