This is a Northwest classic: Walk up a broad valley once coveted by miners to one of the region’s famed fl ower fi elds. Then travel up a small glacier to a high rocky notch in a formidable wall of craggy summits. From there, descend snow, talus, and meadow to a pair of shimmering lakes at the base of one of the most studied glaciers in America. Then return via several high passes that burst with radiant blossoms and mesmerize with horizon-spanning views. No wonder this trip is on many a backpacker’s bucket list!
