We will start from Narada Falls and hike in via Inspiration Saddle. Weather and avalanche conditions permitting, we will camp in the saddle just east of The Castle. This is about a 1400 ft climb from Reflection Lakes. If the weather is poor we will stay in the Reflection Lakes vicinity.

Required gear: shovel, snowshoes, 4-season tent and a hard sided container for food, as required by the Park.

I will cancel the trip if 12 inches or more of snow are predicted by the National Weather Service; here is a link to the NWS website
