Foggy weekend in May

I did a two day, 25ish-mile backpacking loop in Indian Heaven last May and it was fantastic. Relatively flat hiking most of the time, which meant we could get more distance each day. The only drawback was that it was so foggy the entire trip we could usually only see about 50 feet ahead of us. The area was still stunning and the steady blanket of fog made it a truly relaxing, serene experience (especially since we only saw two other people the whole time!) but I do feel like we missed out on some of those mountain views. We camped near Junction Lake as the biting wind coming off the larger lakes was just too cold that early in the season. Overall, I'd highly recommend this trip!
