Well the trail was difficult. but the Lakes were great. Definitely take big spray. I never got bit, but if they attack your be bloodless in seconds. The lake was gorgeous. I'd definitely recommend taking the hike in in two days. Getting out can be done in one (for me, it was 9 hours getting in 4.5 hours getting out). Early July was really nice, only cold at like 6 am, the rest of the time was perfect. Outside of the steep terrain, it was great!
