Started the 50 mi trip from Glacier Pt and trecked to Merced Lake and Red Devil Lake over Red Peak Pass to the Ottoway Lakes and back to Clacier Pt. The trip took 4.5 days of hard hiking. Next time I would stretch it out an extra day. The trip was far beyond my wildest dreams. Great Mt views and wildlife. (mainly deer). Mosquitos were every where. Take insect repellant w/ 99% deet and a mosquito net for your head during the spring and summer months. This early in the year the south side of the pass was covered in sun cupped snow which made for an interesting ascent. recommend snowshoes or crampons for this time frame. Afternoon storms pop up around 3pm. This was the best and hardest hike I've ever accomplished and well worth the effort.
