Amazing and beautiful hike.

Recommend wearing sunscreen.

Arrived at the trail on Sat around 0900 and the main parking lot was full. If you have an off-road high clearance vehicle additional parking at the trail-head.

Attempted to do Jasper Lake, but signs posted “no fires” and it also required a permit to camp. Highly recommend going to the .gov sight for more info about this area. The lake looked very low.

Headed to Devil’s Thumb Lake which was about 1 mile away and found a few camping spots and didn’t see as many restrictions as Jasper Lake.

In mid Sep it snowed and was very cold at night, dropped at night to 23 degree’s with 94 percent humidity.
