This is a 2 night back pack trip.  The first day we will hike in to the camp site and set up tents.  If time, we can do an optional hike to a lake where we can swim but this is no guarantee.  The next day we will hike 7-8 miles, visiting about  6 to 8 different lakes, and enjoy some swimming as appropriate.  Then last day we will pack up and hike out.
