Description

Doug and I weren't quite as fortunate as I had been on the previous weekend, but we still had an exceptionally good time hiking through the woods.  After reviewing a topographic map that we purchased in Bonners Ferry, Idaho, on the way home, we determined that we were short of the lakes by less than a mile.  Two Mouth Lakes are located west of Bonners Ferry, Idaho, with access to the trailhead via Myrtle Creek Road.  It was a beautiful morning, and we even had a moose cross our path on the drive up.  The trail started on an old skid road, and we didn't run into snow until we were approximately one mile up the path.  Then for the next mile it was hit and miss on seeing the trail with route finding becoming much more difficult.  After a while, we simply tried to follow the tracks of an individual who we hoped had the same destination as us.  As mentioned, we got to within a mile of the lakes when we decided to have some lunch and return back.  Doug and I saw a cinnamon black bear on the drive home.
