The Bitterroot Divide between Idaho and Montana contains scores of beautiful backcountry lakes. Two of the most accessible are Diamond and Cliff. No surprise, then, that these two lakes see a fair amount of visitors. But this is western Montana, not western Washington, so “crowded” is still an unknown word here. On a Fourth of July hike to these gems, I shared the trail and the shoreline with only six other parties and four other dogs!
