July 15, 2017 ~ St. Louis Lake is a high alpine lake that sits right at tree line. For me, the weather was perfect, big blue skies, great panoramic views and a few big white puffy clouds racing by. There is dispersed camping at and near the lake. It's very peaceful there. Once on the actual trail the trail spends a good amount of time skirting the St. Louis Creek. At this time of the year, it was still full, but not a raging torrent so it made the hike all the more relaxing. The wildflowers are in full bloom along the trail, lots of blues, yellows, reds - it's very pretty at this time of year.
