A successful hike! There wasn't much snow on Thunder and just a bit on Heintzelman. We took the Lemon Creek trail head. Mud wasn't bad at all with hiking boots. The bugs were though so bring bug spray.
Hiked this for the first time with some childhood friends and my sister.
One memorable ascent was with my fourth grade class. The trails were poorly marked at that time and everyone got separated and lost on the way down.
