Upper Duck Lake and Rain Peak, Payette National Forest

Hiking with John, Tom, Cody, Cash, and Ruby.  See http://www.splattski.com for more trip details.

We started off on the Duck Lake Trail with is one of the more popular trails in the area but we soon veered off and were headed to parts few see!  Upper Duck Lake.
