With Flanders on our annual BrianSquared trip. Had hiked up Summer Blossom Trail and tagged North Navarre and Horsethief Peak the day earlier. Went down from Surprise Lake where we camped and then up the trail on the east side. Were planning on scrambling over to Martin but didn't find a non-technical route down. Ended up heading down the Angels Staircase Trail and camping at Boiling Lake afterwards. Sunny, nice day.
