One of the more adventurous activities at Meadow Lake is hiking to Gilmore Peak (10,900 feet) which sits just to the south of the lake. Steve, Matthew, Aubrey, and Deena made the trek which provided great views of the lake, the Lemhi mountains, Mount Borah (Idaho's tallest peak) and a distant look at the White Cloud range. Along the way we saw two large military aircraft overhead in a refueling maneuver. We also saw two fighter jets that were actually flying in the valley below us.
Near the top, we decided scramble to the top of a point to see the lake below and unfortunately Aubrey slipped and fell receiving several cuts on her hand and leg. Fortunately, none were to serious and we fixed her up with by tearing strips of fabric off of Steve's shirt. The view from the top was spectacular and well worth the trip.
