Kara, Julia, Janie, Alicia, Melanie, and I took off for an adventure in the Two Medicine area to Cobalt Lake. We left from the Two Medicine Lake Boat Launch and ate lunch near Rockwell Falls, which were absolutely gushing with all the snow melt. The trail turned to a slushy mucky mess after a few miles, but we were not deterred. Eventually it became completely snow covered, with no apparent trail. Good thing for a fisherman in front of us, or we would have had no clue where we were heading. At Cobalt Lake we made fast friends with the fisherman, named Olen. He was working on a ranch in eastern Montana, and a little lonely. We chatted with him on the return trip, and shared a delicious feast with him at Serrano’s. Some of us decided it would be a good idea to run part of the trail back, unfortunately it also meant that we sped right past a moose swimming in the pond. The others who weren’t in such a hurry to get to the car stopped and watched the moose for a bit.
