This was an incredible hike. Waptus Lake was more gorgeous than I could have imagined. It was worth every sore muscle and bug bite (and believe me, the bugs were not fun). I would highly suggest bringing bug spray and a mosquito netting to wear on the hike.

I am new to backpacking so the hike was only difficult because of the mileage. We hiked in on 7/6/18, did a relaxing day hike alongside the right side of the Lake on the 7th, and left on the 8th. Next time I would plan an extra two days to add in Spade Lake.
