Meander up the Pacific Crest Trail to an alpine world fl ush in wildfl owers, larches, and craggy mountains spiraling toward the heavens. Trek along a high ridge beneath pointy pinnacles watching for ravens and nutcrackers above and ground squirrels and mountain goats below. Then climb to a high hidden bench that holds the shallow, shimmering, summit-refl ecting Snowy Lakes. Frozen in July, sparkling in August, and golden in September, the Snowy Lakes are showy lakes throughout the hiking season.
