Starting from ADK Loj, through Avalanche Pass, by Avalanche Lake, ascent via Trap Dike to Mt Colden. Then descent by the usual Mt Colden trail via Lake Arnold and back to the Loj. For some reason GPS recording stopped before I closed the loop and the timing is off; the trace seems to be accurate, though
