This will be a counter-clockwise loop.  We'll take the Spray Park trail with a quick side trip to see the falls, and then do Hessong Rock and Mt. Pleasant.  Then, we'll circle around to Knapsack Pass and climb First Mother Mountain and then descend back to Mowich.  There will certainly still be snow, but I expect lots of flowers too.  It's nicer to do this trip on a weekday to avoid the crowds.
