Nice trip. Watch out for Bigfoot. Don't expect solitude at Sky Lakes Basin - that's where everybody else seems to expect it. Once past, though, I didn't see many people. MY second night I camped at Marble Gap (pack water) and climbed Black Marble Mountain (class 3 or 4) for spectacular fun and views. If you don't feel comfortable climbing the peak, the gap is still a great place to spend the night (good views and no mosquitos).
