An early morning start had mirror lake reflections on Rae Lakes. Today we had a long ascent to set us up for Pinchot Pass. However the trail took us by the beautiful Rae Lakes, Arrowhead and Dollar Lake. Rangers mentioned bear activity but we had seen none. We descended following the south fork of the Woods Creek until we came to the single person suspension bridge.
