Thankfully, Libby likes to sleep close and I made a little room for her in the sleeping bag.

All the rain caused some pretty major rock slides. The lake sits in a bowl surrounded by big peaks on 3 sides, and the sound of the slides echoed off the 13k+ walls like gun shots. It was LOUD pretty amazing to see.
Awesome. I'll have to go check some of those out soon. Thanks for sharing.
