It was a fantastic day to get out and enjoy the hike to Lake Annette and then on to the Giant steps. There’s been a fair bit of snow so things were muddy and icy in areas but it definitely eliminated any tourist traffic. I only ran into 7 people on my way out. The majority of the trail along paradise creek is fairly low angle and in good condition. I took some video of the falls but can’t seem to get the uploaded. Loved the hike.
