The spring flowers were out in full force!
Since we were headed to Tin Cup Lake we would have had to ford the creek 4 times...this was the first crossing!!! NO WAY!
This was just above the crossing!!!
This is what was below that crossing!!!
We decided to go back down the trail and camp at this nice spot by the river the first night. That water looks Sooo nice but let me tell ya even here it was deep and oh so COLD!
Next day we decided to go to a different Lake we could actually get too! This is an overlook on the road to the next trailhead.

Going to Baker Lake, big rainstorm just missed us.
Our Casa for the next few days!
Our special haul for the Fourth of July Holiday...well EARNED I might add!
Baker Lake the next morning, our camp was almost center in this picture up on the rocks next to the lake.
We hiked up to see two more lakes above Baker Lake and this was along the way...can you see me so little in this picture?!
Other side of the Middle Lake!
In the pocket just above this waterfalls is the upper most lake here.
The upper lake is called Gem Lake and it was still mostly frozen.
Looking back down on Middle Lake.
