    Default Bowman Lake RD

    Bowman lake RD has access to several lakes I will try to get more on here this summer as the snow clears. Friday night I rook the kid for a picnic dinner to Rutger lake. Here are few photos the lighting was poor and the camera is an older cell phone but this is what I got.



    The road in. Took the newest jeep in the fleet, little brother for his first trip off road.



    To access Rutger Lake you park in a parking lot and hike in to the camp ground and lake. No motorized boats or vehicals. This is what most of the camp ground looks like right now



    My favorite campsite









    All the camp grounds are closed for the winter, so we went home for the night and came back Saturday. (half hour drive) Saturday we started at fuller lake.

    This trip it rained off and on the whole time I was there. The fog would come and go, At one point it was so thick I could only see about 5 feet. made for an interesting hike in a place I had never been. My phone battery died fairly early on this hike so i did not photo graph all the lakes this time





    The trail in. Foot traffic only





    An unnamed pond supossed to be full of bull head cat fish



    The marsh filling the pond. Look in the back ground and you will see snow. It has been snowing at night then melting in the day for last week.
