From 8am-5pm M-F, I am a structural engineer, but once I get home, I'm engineering my next bushwackin' sufferfest to some desolate peak in the Cascades. Sony a6000 w/ Sony 55-215mm, Sigma 19mm, Samyang 12mm.

Great Trip!

There are a lot of options here, too - we took a right before heading down the switchbacks and traversed Lillian Ridge to Moose Peak before descending upon the valley and reaching Gladys Lake, followed by Moose Lake and Grand Lake. We stayed overnight at Grand Lake which is equally spectacular, and continued out back to obstruction point via Badger Valley. The prairies on this route were incredible! And you are spot on about the deer. They are feisty.
