Gorgeous hike. Still a ton of snow patches on the trail on the way in. Took it very slow and made it up to grizzly peak the first night to camp. Super buggy. Pressed on thru more snow and on to pear lake. Spent 3 wonderful nights of solitude at the lake. Very hot weather made for a gracious melt for our hike out. Started at 5:30am to beat the heat and the bugs and made it to the trailhead just before 10:30. Great trip in all, made it without spikes, axe, and brought the pup along as well.

Great trip. 8 miles each way and not really well known. A lot of people stop at the pond just before the pass going to Pear Lake. It's totally worth it to go up over the pass and camp at the lake it's beautiful. Lots of fish in the lake as well. Pretty easy hike with plenty of switch backs so the elevation gain is not bad. Even the stretch up the pass which was 800 feet in about a quarter mile was a piece of cake.
