Let's just say that when you arrive at Upper Crystal Lake the 3 miles straight up hill and the stinging thighs are worth it.
Beautiful clear lake near the treeline, open and sunny, you can easily walk all around the lake. The edges were a bit marshy in places but there were also some boulders to sit on and eat lunch. Lots of mosquitoes, close to the water, so we used our bug spray.
