Headed in from the Holland Lake trail head, looking back on Holland Lake.
Above the Holland Lake Falls.
Looking off the walking bridge....
The trail crosses the creek here, just above the Holland Lake Falls
WOW! What an awesome swimming hole!
This trip will take us behind that peak on this trip...
That is the trail, just a bit overgrown here!!
Looking back on Holland Lake again a little higher up the mountain.
These bridges are great, but I also love soaking hot tired feet in the cold water!
Upper Holland Lake, 7 miles in, all uphill by the way!!!
Upper Holland Lake, where we made camp.
Time for a swim, a nap and some fishing!
Remember to hang your food!

Fresh Clear water, ummm!
Heading up towards the pass before the Necklace Lakes area.
Yea...thats the trail and YES it is July!
Hard to see the country when your working so hard climbing a hill!
Whewww the top of the pass.
Can you spot Dave on the trail in the middle of this picture? Thats the trail alright!
When we came across this spot we just had to camp here!
Buttercups I think. They were all over the place.
These little Run-Off ponds were everywhere with really cool waterfalls coming out of them.
Cool to see these they will be dried up in a few weeks!
Yep, believe it or not it was pretty chilly up here!
