Nice hike. Hot on the return in the afternoon with radiation from the stones. Rocky surfaces made it harder. The group seemed to like it though. Visited several lakes, including Timber Lake, which was nice and easy to get to. Road bad as always and made the drive long. Lots of mosquitoes at Upper Lake, but none at Timber Lake. Wait a year before going up there again. It was a three hour drive each way.
Not sure about Park Ridge. That might be at least 3 1/2 hours each way!
