Poison Campground, Cascade Lake St Pk, Donnelley, Idaho

 Sept 7, 2011We moved to Poison Campground at Cascade Lake St. Pk  near Donnelley.  This is a peaceful campground, some sites back right up to the lake.  Most of the riding was on gravel type roads, used as fire/logging roads. We ventured out and up the mountain to an old Fire Tower on a backwoods road.

We also hauled out to Blue Lake, to the south,  where you will find the Eagles Nest Volcano, which is hard to find because you are in it! It was warm 80*, ducks, geese, pelicans and a lone loon. We hiked into the lake, wow, what blue color, and great views.
