Hello All, I am preparing for my next backpacking trip, a group of six will be going to Evolution Valley Lake via Florence Lake the first week of August, 2017.The last time that I was there was 40 years ago and we crossed over at Mt Mendel, at that time there was a plenty of glacial snow pack that made it easy to climb directly up and over. The group consist of 6 Ex- boy Scout Dad that have continued on packing over the last twelve years. we are a well grease group and have been on numerous backpacks every year. Greg has been a great inspiration and his first episodes with Motion keep us going back. Hopefully when I get back I will have pictures to share.
