Ryder Lake and Middle Basin
Ryder Lake (10,640) and the Middle Basin area of the Stillwater Fork drainage. From this lofty perch on the northwest shoulder of Mt.Agassiz (12,428 ft) you can see forever. Thats what I love so much about hiking and summiting peaks, the views are absolutely incredible and they are places where you can really get away from everyone. We couldn't spend to much time up high during our week stay due to the monsoon season was underway and usually by 1pm we were surrounded by thunderclouds, lightning and heavy rain showers.
