Lower Lena Lake is beautiful and easily accessible . We hiked further up into the Brothers Wilderness expecting to cross streams and find alpine pools to bath in and instead hiked parallel to a dry riverbed. The only saving grace for this part of the hike was the variety of yummy wild berries. We hiked back to Lena and went for a swim.
