String lake is one of the small lakes that is in between Jenny Lake and Leigh Lake. Jenny Lake and Leigh Lake were named after early settlers Dick and Jenny Leigh, which is a story I’ll tell some other time. If you are ever in this area, the wonderful Jenny Lake Lodge is nearby and is a 5-Star restaurant in the park. If you make reservations for lunch you can get the 5-star meals at a lunch time price. Dinner reservations are hard to come by and very expensive. It’s one of this hidden lunch time treasures of the park.
