Maverick hit this nail on the head. It's an incredible area deserving of spending time there to get some appreciation. It's about as good as it gets.

Thanks everyone for your suggestions. I think we will start out on Copper Creek and will have to see how long we can go out for. The area sounds beautiful and we enjoy the solitude.

I've been eyeing the trip suggested by Lambertiana, varying a bit by using Roper's High Route to get to Lakes Basin. Given this year's conditions, does anyone have a sense of whether there would be any added difficulties doing this trip starting the beginning of August? (Other than mosquitoes, which will be a universal theme for August.)
