We basecamped at Lady Lake and spent one of four days at Lower Aero lake. Was on my bucket list and I was not disappointed although did not catch any fish at this giant moon-base lake. The last mile is more of a rock hopping climb and is very steep. Mountain goats spied on us from fairly close. Memorable and lovely.
