I did Barker Pass to Richardson Lake and back. 12+ miles total with about 1360' elevation changes. Compared to previous years there are more live streams and the wildflowers are vibrant and diverse. I'm a fast hiker and completed the round trip in 4 hours. I posted a few pics. Go now and enjoy the flowers. You may need bug spray.

Desolation is the highlight (5 stars from echo to the Velma's), north of the Velma's it is a nice forest hike with some lakes and streams
