For an experienced backpacker, this is easily doable in 2 nights. Absolutely stunning views, wildlife, and wildflowers. We started at marble creek pass and stayed at twin lakes the first night and summit the second. If you can end at Anthony Lakes on a Sunday during the summer, the starbottle saloon should be open and you can reward yourself for knocking out 23 miles with some beer and pizza.
