Ascent Trip ReportTruly a great little hike to a sweet viewpoint. I took the Lewis Lake trail and headed up from there. Due to weather concerns (storms predicted for the afternoon), I went up early enough to be just the 2nd person to the summit for the day. A guy from Colorado was ten minutes ahead of me and I was slow working my way through the boulders that led to the top. Met the resident marmot and also a pika but the benchmark was pretty much unreadable thanks to generations of people messing with it. Views of the lakes nice from many spots on the trail On the way down I must have passed 30 people. I completely forgot about getting the nearby county highpoint (arrrgggH)
