Tons of mosquitos in this section. plenty of water. We finished up our hike at Twin Lakes, coming from TN Pass( Seg 9). We summited Mt Elbert too. Hike Mt Elbert EARLY. We started at 5am. AWESOME views at sunrise on Elbert. packs snacks, water and a rain jacket. We slackpacked with granolas, 100 oz water, rain jacket and emergency bivy. Plan for 6-8 hours on Elbert.
