Two options for this hike:
1. - Only to Lake Ann and back; about 13 - 14 km return with net elevation gain of 550 to 600 meters.
2. - Add side trail beyond, to a lookout view across closer to Lower Curtis Glacier
17 to 18 km return with net elevation gain of 800 to 850 meters.
Weather nicely co-operated as it cleared up when we reached our lunch spot. Continue to clear nicely, as our day ended.
