Amid glorious mountain scenery, the trip samples every major environment in the range from lush rainforests to glaciers. There is also plenty of wildlife to enjoy, including marmots, deer, elk, and black bear. The route leads along a strikingly beautiful stream and climaxes in the most sublime alpine basin in the entire range. Last, but certainly not least, it visits spectacular Enchanted Valley, where an historic chalet is well situated for viewing the surrounding meadow, peaks, and waterfalls. With good weather, this hike is about as close to backpacking perfection as you are likely to find.
