This is a great July hike. We will go by Mason Lake then up Mt. Defiance. There usually are wild flowers blooming in the alpine meadows above the lake and there is a great view of several alpine lakes from the summit. The last part of the trail is narrow and steep. Some photos from last years hike are:
