Two cars, great fun, a one way shuttle...

We parked on car at the Denny Creek TH and then drove up to the Snow Lake TH. Packed up and we were on our way.

First lake...Snow Lake...it's a big one.

Then up and over to Gem Lake. From here and the route along the eastern flanks of Mt Roosevelt and then over to Chair Lake are spectacular.

From Chair Lake we headed over Melakwa Pass and then down to Melakwa Lakes picking up trail again near the lakes outlet.

Then, up over Hemlock Pass and down Denny Creek to the waiting car at the TH with a quick shuttle back to the Snow Lake TH to pick up the 2nd car.

Great route in the summer.
