Backpacked from East Rosebud to Rainbow Lake. Clear trail, great views - but very, very buggy. The mosquitos were unbearable at times, but that’s to be expected over the summer!

Capped off a great longer day hike starting from East Rosebud lake going passed elk Lake and Rimrock Lake to end the day at Rainbow Lake. What a beautiful view and worth the extra mile past Rimrock Lake.
