Sleeping Beauty

Not far from Trout Lake is a popular trail hike to the top of a rocky outcrop called Sleeping Beauty. This trip I clearly saw how she got her name.

As the sun went down and silhouetted the horizon she clearly looked like a woman laying on her back! Apparently she had more of a nose before the CCC blasted it off to put a fire lookout up there in the 30's.

In the morning I was shocked to see she looked even more like a woman! The early sun highlighted the shape of the rocks to give the impression of flowing hair and a neck line. Beautiful! What an amazing natural formation!

very cool! I didn't know we had anything like this around here. I grew up in Helena, MT, where we had the Sleeping Giant Mt. to look at everyday. He is not nearly as attractive as she is!
