This is a great hike. You can read more about it at: http://www.wta.org/go-hiking/hikes/gothic-basin You can also see photos from last years hike at: https://picasaweb.google.com/aeh212g/GothicBasin02 and from 2009: https://picasaweb.google.com/aeh212g/GothicBasin You do need to know this is a difficult trail. There are numerous fallen trees across the trail a couple of small stream crossings. There are a few very steep parts. The last part of the hike up to foggy lake is up a boulder field. And, due to a road wash out that has never been fixed there is an extra 1 mile hike to the trail head (this hike will end up being 12.5 miles round trip). But, it is well worth it!
