It was a beautiful valley and lakes with great weather- problem was all in the trail. The drop in was hard and the overgrowth full bugs made it miserable. The trail was washed out in several places and there were three very large trail clogger trees along with five smaller trees that had to be navigated. Trail aside, the camp spots were big, open, smooth and well located next to the lakes. I posted a picture form the top of the swichbacks, the bottom of the switchbacks and of the overgrowth
