Hike to Timothy Lake the first day and explored all the lakes in the drainage.Its a beautiful basin. Climbed Bluebell pass which was very steep with few switchbacks the next day. Camped the next day at Tungston lake above timberline. Climbed Porcupine Pass and Wilson Peak which had great views of Red Castle Lake then camped at Five Point Lake. Explored Doll and Spider lakes and returned the next day to the trailhead. Fun loop
