after reading several negative descriptions about this trail in various guidebooks & websites, this route was better than expected. A quick, efficient way to access the Thousands Lakes highpoints. It's also on the dry side of the wilderness, so the mosquitos weren't bad at all.
"Got tight last night on absinthe and did knife tricks. Great success shooting the knife into the piano. The woodworms are so bad and eat hell out of all furniture that you can always claim the woodworms did it."
