Snowgrass, Ladies, Cape Horn, Grindstone Date Climbed: Jul 22, 2013
4 peaks in 2 days. Camped near Lake Edna.
Something funky is going on with mosquitoes this year. They have been bad the last two trip but this time they were worse than I've ever seen in my life. I was able to kill 5 or 10 with one swat. They followed us everywhere, even to the summit of Grindstone.
I haven't been to Lake Edna, but they were like that last summer at Lake Augusta. It was a hot summer. They were really nasty on Mac Peak in July. Three mosquitoes in your water bottle before you put it up to your mouth.
