Quite a bit of snow still above the lakes; beautiful scenery. The field traverse above the last lake, just below the pass, is a little hairy on the snow without an axe and roped partner. It's pretty steep and a long way down sliding into the lake. But we did it anyway and it was ok - gave us something to talk about.
"After the first glass, you see things as you wish they were. After the second, you see things as they are not. Finally, you see things as they really are, which is the most horrible thing in the world."
--Oscar Wilde on Absinthe
