The trail was scenic and exciting. Getting to the lake was well worth the trek.
The scenery was great. The trail challenging for a beginner/intermediate prairie girl. The lake at the top was a great place to relax and cool off the feet.
We had beautiful weather and beautiful scenery. All the wildlflowers were out and the views were spectacular. Going through a small cave is lots of fun, with a bit of scrambling aided by cables. Near the top of the hike you can stand on top of the huge waterfall that you've been viewing for half the hike. A short bit further you come to your reward - a beautiful alpine lake with a small snowy glacier at one end. Definitely worth the hike!
