Paddy-Go-Easy Pass & Sprite Lake

Road to the trailhead is rough and best for high clearance vehicles. On the way back we passed an Audi driver stopped in the road, picking up part of the bottom of her car that the road ate.

Perfect weather today and we had Sprite Lake all to ourselves. Two folks went skinny dipping in the lake and the trip leader went swimming. Still some huckleberries in the meadow above the lake. Great fall colors but the larches haven't started turning. The hiking guide talks of a trail split below the pass but we never did find this split. Upper part of the trail is quite rocky. Lower part is dirt but quite steep. Scarlet gilia still blooming amazingly. All in all an awesome hike. There is not a lot of parking at the trailhead. Only saw 2 other hikers all day.
