The place, time and car pooling will be covered by e-mail to the registered hikes the week before the hike.

We get to check out one of the prettiest lakes in the lower Enchantments. Emerald colored water, small glaciers on the flanks of the Stuart Range, and a very pretty trail are just some of the sites to see. This involves a trail with a tough assent with rocky terrain. We will hike at a moderate pace. I will be going over Friday and camping in a Forest Service campground, but if you wanted to get up real early Saturday, you could make the 8:30 am hike. Specifics will be developed with registered hikers. The registration for this hike opens on May 19th and closes on July 8th.
