Description

Just a quick report to say that it was a beautiful destination for a tough hike. The first four-ish miles were rugged and on a continuous incline. Several lakes make the scenery better. Good thing is you hike mostly in the shade. We crossed the PCT on top of the ridge at Cathedral Pass, then instead of heading down to Deep Lake, we skirted across and towards Peggy's Pond and Cathedral Rock. Sketchy go in a few spots - be careful. Day 2 headed up and around to climb towards Mt. Daniel. Made it as far as the last snow field, at the foot of Mt. Daniel, in a boulder strewn bowl, at the headwaters of a river - pretty sweet. Tons of bugs, but you know that going in. Lots of exploring to other nameless lakes and cool vistas.
