Lovely. This was a day hike I the fall of 2010 and I still want to backpack it to Glacier Lakes. There's lots to feast your eyes on.

Hiked to Surprise Lake yesterday. What a beautiful hike. Good elevation gain, kicked my butt, but it was worth it when we got there. Lots of butterflies on the trail.
