One of my favorite hikes off I-90. This will be a social/moderate paced, strenuous hike - done at a nice easy, but steady pace. We'll first hike through Commonwealth Basin behind Guy peak - while having great views of Red Mountain. Then ascend up to a cirque basin below Red Mountain for lunch by a small tarn. Then it is on up to Red Pass for great views of Mount Thomson and more. Keep an eye out for blueberries along the way - there were lots last year!
