Set amid rock and heather gardens against a backdrop of towering snow-faced spires, and lined with gnarly hemlocks resembling bonsai trees, the Twin Lakes are tucked in a remote, rugged, and enchanting basin. Once the domain of hardscrabble prospectors, the twins are now claimed by backpackers seeking rewarding adventure and stunning scenery. Bountiful berry patches and abundant grasses and shrubbery help keep the resident marmot, mountain goat, and bear populations content.
