Details

From Mitchell Lake TL, in Brainard Lake Rec. Area, we will hike past Mitchell and Blue Lakes, before we head off-trail to the seldom-visited Upper Blue Lake (11,833’), high in a glacial cirque surrounded by Audubon, Paiute, Toll, Pawnee and Little Pawnee, all 13,000’ or close to it. There is some 3rd Class rock scrambling over the last 1/2 mile.  We will continue our tour of the  cirque by heading South, crossing alpine meadows called home by Ptarmigan and pikas, and then head back down to Blue Lake.
