Thanks for the report & congrats on the wedding,
We hang out a lot back there in the summer, hard to beat for fishing and swimming.
I've summer hiked in from Fallen Leaf. When we were out there we figured we might need a couple more nights, throw in a couple more hills, including the north side of Dicks on the way out. But then you don't get to take your pack off and paddle much of the way out, and that was one of the best parts of this trip.
We found better fishing when we were out skiing, so maybe a different campsite, but I'm thinking we'll just spend a few more days out next year. We wanted two nights this year but my buddy was in Panama for 10 days and didn't get off the plane 'til midnight the day before.
