Making progress on "Happy Lake Ridge" trail.

The boys, glad to be on the ridge rather than climbing. Fairchild and Carrie glaciers in the background to the south.

Perched on the edge of a talus slope looking off to the south.

Glaciers to the south.

Happy lake at last, after a 1/2 mile descent from the ridge. It was a bit alarming to descend a half mile after spending all that energy to gain the elevation.

Our campsite on Happy lake. The bugs (mosquitoes) were vicious here. First order on arriving was to swim (skinny dip for the Jimster since he forgot his bathing suit), then pitch tents to make bug-free shelter for the boys.
