Bennettville (Part 2)

After reaching Bennettville in the summer of 2005 we decided to go a bit further north to Fantail Lake. Part of reason we did this was to help adjust to the elevation so we could climb Matterhorn Peak a few days later. It was just meant to be a mild hike, but it was a very scenic area. The following picture was taken from Tioga Peak looking down into Fantail Lake.
Fantail Lake is a average sized lake for a back-country type of hike. It has a bunch of marshy areas and one area that looks like an island in the lake.
Here is how it looks as we hiked to it:
What is great about this area is you can see a TOWERING Mt. Dana in the background.
