We day-hiked to the tarn below Cataract Pass yesterday, what a sensational hike! We thought we would hike along with no firm destination, and turn around when we had enough, but it was so amazing, we didn't want to leave. Also, I really wanted to see what was around the corner at the end of the valley, below the pass, and it was a spectacular view of the tarn below Cataract Pass and the wall of mountains. The various colours of rock along the way are wonderful.
Thanks very much for posting about this hike, we never would have hiked toward Cataract Pass otherwise. We did three hikes on a small camping trip this past week, and this was by far our favourite hike. I am really wanting to get up and over Cataract Pass now.
