Great views of the lakes ! A bit dusty of a trail and with a hot day it made hiking a little harder. Tiring but worth it!

Couldn't quite reach the ridgeline, as i wasn't comfortable with the steep snow slopes on way up from twin lakes. The lakes are still mostly frozen over. Gorgeous area, it will be a very nice short backpacking trip in a few weeks.
