Just finished the Rae Lakes Loop northbound starting and ending at Road's End. We only stayed one night at Rae Lakes, due to THICK mosquitos...started on a Tuesday and finished on Saturday...4 nights and 5 days. We planned a couple of double nights at Rae and a stay at Vidette but due to mosquitos we pushed onward; could not stand still without getting a face full.
Felt static on Glen Pass, luckily we made it through the weather window, brief as it was. I apologize for the sizing on the photos, compression for uploading won this battle...nonetheless, my new Canon PowerShot S-90 was great.
All in all...great trip. Any day backpacking is a great day, regardless of the weather.

Hope you all enjoy.
