1. Easier drive in and out.
2. More central to both north and south travelers.
3. Easier hike in.
4. Probably more sheltered from the weather than Cottonwood lakes.
5. Various on and off trail opps within fairly good range.
I think this is my choice!
I can only stay for the weekend, but others may want to stay longer. I have 3 Bearikades that we can use.
I'll start a list tonight on who's going, including those who weren't sure.
