Ended up being a very nice hike. Conditions were quite good along the trail and it was mostly dry - a nice change from our super wet and muddy hike to Fish Lakes last weekened! A couple muddy spots, one snowy spot, but that was it and they were totally manageable. All in all a pretty easy hike, even with the elevation gain.
Campsite was nice, especially the nearby river, but the mosquitos were like nothing I've ever experienced before!! Holy Jeebus!!
We went through our whole mini bottle of bug spray, which normally lasts us four or five 2 day trips lol
We got into camp pretty early and hung out by the river for a bit, me reading on my kobo with my feet in the water, and that was really nice. It was around 7:30 or so, as we were trying to cook our dinner and drink a beer, that suddenly the mosquitos and black flies got really bad around the river and we had to pack it in and hang out in our tents for the rest of the evening after wolfing down our food. Mosquitos were bad at the campsite from the moment we got there.
Still, I would do this one again.
