    Backpacking to Cosley Lake was incredible. About 3 miles in there is a beautiful opening looking the mountains above the glacier aqua water. Great for pictures. We stopped for a snack at gable CG. Met some CDTers. Then continued on. After gable it’s about 3 more miles. We stopped at the waterfall which was gorgeous with the sun hitting on the turquoise water. It was ragging after all this rain and snow melt. The last mile to the lake is a bit rough and more uphill. The last mile hiking out is a bit brutal with the packs and it’s more uphill. I would say the hike is harder on the way out than on the way in. Lol But so worth it.
