Y Meadow Dam Lake (an easy first-night camping spot from Gianelli) to Leopold Lake through Tom's Canyon is also a fun, open, beautiful, cross-country route.

Leopold, being trail-less, and something of a dead end on its ridge is definitely not crowded, and addresses the sky in the way I like mountain lakes to do.

Leopold's outflow goes southeast to Cherry Creek. Following down slabs and hanging meadows south of the outflow (which did not feel dangerous with a 30-pound pack, though I did use my hands some) can take you to where the main trail crosses Cherry Creek. From there it's not too far to Wire Lakes.
