My daughters and I hiked Ice Lakes Trail yesterday, Saturday, June 13. We hiked the trail almost the same day five years ago, and this year there was so much snow the higher we got, that we almost didn't make it to the upper lake. We were fortunate enough to be behind two gentlemen who had gear in which they made tracks across ice packs that we could follow. They were obviously the first to make it to the top this year and made it possible for us to be next! On the way up the mountain, we were shedding clothing, but shortly after we headed down, it started to snow pretty heavily and the lower we got, the more wet the snow became. Roaring thunder and snow made for a great climb down. Luckily we had rain gear and it ended up being a beautiful day! We love your mountain and will continue to climb it every chance we get!
