Honestly, I think Tim and Grant might be two of the strongest hikers I’ve ever accompanied! They had me RUNNING to keep up at times. It was a fun challenge… until I twisted my ankle about halfway down the descent.
I made it back down all right, though, and it really was a lovely hike. There’s still a lot of deep, soft snow up there (especially between Lawn Lake and the Crystal Lakes). We even saw a herd of bighorn sheep and a moose near the trailhead.
