Heather Maple Pass Loop

This is without a doubt one of the most beautiful hikes I have ever been on.  You leave a parking lot just like any other hike but soon forget about cars, people, and the rest of the world.  You can hike down to the lake first (we did) and look up at the mountains surrounding - those will be the mountains you will hike along.  Its a trail that leads around the lake and back to the parking lot (loops are the best!).  The most of the time you are high on a ridge with absolutely stunning vistas in every direction. Mountains, snow, green, gray, beautiful blue lakes in the distance.  It's almost overwhelming.
I can't wait to go back and and take off to some of the lakes in the distance.
