Hike 7/52 for the 52 hike challenge. This is a popular trail and quite an easy hike. Most of the mild uphill is in the beginning.
Eventually, you make it into the valley below. The creeks that drain out of the lakes are two different colors.I am still addicted to panoramic photos.The further into the valley you walk, the more boulders begin to appear.Eventually arriving at the lakes, you can see why the two creeks are different colors.One lake (Eagle) is the turquoise color of the glacial silt. The other (Symphony) is snow melt and precipitation. They are separated by a narrow ridge. It is a beautiful hike near Anchorage.The creek crossings were easier for some of us.
