Condition report Morgan Pass out of Mosquito Flats

Postby Baughb » Wed Jul 18, 2012 5:05 pm

Hi,
I'm a level 3 backpacker (according to the list in the info section) and I'm taking a couple of level 1 hikers on an overnighter (or two) to the Gem Lakes area via the Mosquito flat trailhead. Mostly just fly fishing and hanging out during the week of August 6th.

I don't expect to be all alone out there but a recent condition report would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you

Bob

Welcome to HST! A report from 7/5 reports mosquitoes ranging from 0-2. Snow is
not an issue. Plenty of water is available, and you will have plenty of fellow hikers
and backpackers, especially at the first few lakes. If you go to the far end of the lakes
you can get away from most folks and have some solitude. This especially true with
Hidden Lakes.
Here is someone pictures to the area that will give you an idea of the terrain at the
lakes further back in LLV.
