The lakes are nice, particularly the second one. It took me a bit of time trying to find the final lake (have to scramble up the rocks ahead of the second lake) and I actually lost the trail at a couple of points on this hike. The walk was fine but there’s wasn’t much of a scenery.

Great weather some rain and smoke, fishing was great, mosquitoes where moderate to bad depending how close you camped to the water.
