Arrival

camp location

Time to find out about that snow! The hike was immediately stunningly pretty, with clear skies and glacier lakes abound.

It's hard to not find this beautiful

I quickly reached the last of the staffed cabins, and I asked the gentleman working there about the snow. He waved his hand dismissively and said "it's no problem". Yay! Onwards I go, then :-)

I think I'm headed for that mesa-thing ahead.

As I hiked onwards, the trail kept getting prettier and prettier and prettier. There was some snow at times, but none of it was bad. Sometimes a little bit annoying, but even if I'd had a my microspikes, I don't think I would've bothered to put them on.

This is "snow" big deal

One thing I found interesting was that the sun cups were extremely different from the sun cups I'm used to. I assume it's because the sun never really gets high in the sky here, but it was still really interesting to see.

The alpine lakes that I came across were stunning. The water was so blue and the snow was so white and the grass was so green. I regret that all I have for you is some inadequate pictures, but maybe that will serve as incentive to go out and see it for yourself :-)

Kinda makes you want to run across it
