Thanks for sharing the TR! It's one of those places I've visited many times, but your photos made it feel immediate and fresh. Your sunset photo over Rae Lakes, like mirror glass, gave my deja vu and I was reminded of that specific morning alpine feeling you get.

Glad everyone liked the photos. The whole area is incredible to someone who largely backpacks in the SE. I'm in the process of planning next summer and questions are coming soon. I wish I had found this place before planning last year's trip, everything would have been much easier :)

Since a couple people specifically mentioned Rae Lakes, here is a pano as I climbed out of the valley (Painted Lady just off to the right), just looking at it makes me want to go back :)

Outstanding photos. My fav was the morning shot at Charlotte Lake.
