"Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness, and many of our people need it sorely on these accounts. Broad, wholesome, charitable views of men and things cannot be acquired by vegetating in one little corner of the earth all one's lifetime"-MARK TWAIN

Five Lakes

Just a few miles from the campground in Jasper was an area known as Five Lakes.  A trail accessed all five, so we headed out to find them.

The trail was good.  Packed earth, no mud; but quite a few mosquitos.  The lakes were all small, but beautiful.  Each one was just a tint or so different from the others.  Come on along.

After the hike, we headed to town for some of this.
