This summer my family and I decided to hike/climb to Cloud Peak in the Big Horn Mountains. We took our heavy backpacks and hiked up to Mistymoon Lake. The bridge across the stream at one point of the trip was taken apart. You have to be prepared to walk through cold rushing water, or you can walk across a log and jump through many small islands. Also be prepared for the mosquitoes. There are almost none of them at first but as you head to Lake Helen there will be lots of them. The mosquitoes were almost unbearable, they swarmed everywhere and forced you to wear thick all-covering clothing even while sweating. We camped above Mistymoon Lake and headed out in the morning to Cloud Peak. Be prepared to cross more streams, the good thing is that while you head up the mosquitoes start to diminish. We did some boulder hopping and scrambling on our way up and got to the top. There were storm clouds coming in and it started to snow on our way down from the peak. The peak had beautiful 360 degree views of the mountains that surrounded Cloud Peak. I advise you to be ready for any conditions, including snow. So bring gear that could keep you warm in the freezing nights. We got caught in a small snowstorm up there but luckily, my dad pushed us to go faster and stay together in order to avoid it. The trip ended with us going to sleep in our tents that night and heading down back the mountain in the morning to the nearby parking lot.
