Comments: Beautiful day for a hike! Perfect weather and the foliage is just starting, little wind at both summits (North summit within the trail and has a small lookout before it, South wide open summit with a beautiful cairn). The Hut is only open 11a-4p so we missed stopping in for a quick candy bar, but filled up water at the spicket. Steep rocky areas going up Fishin' Jimmy that made the legs very tired the next day! Lonesome Lake is breathtaking and glad we finally got these two peaks.
