beautiful hike with great views of diamond peak and a few smaller lakes along the way. I started at 740 am and was at the base of mount yoran at 845 or so. I had planned on scrambling to the summit but holy hell the mosquitos in this area are straight out of hell. I must have killed a hundred of them and still got dozens of bug bites. the evil little things were even able to keep you with me while I was hiking and eventually drove me away from the summit as I couldn't move fast enough up the scree fields to get away from them. I'd only reccomend this if you're covered in long pants and long sleeves with a buff over your head and neck and even then you'd better jump in a vat of feet before heading out.
