Red’s Meadow to Minaret Lake
Distance: 17.60km Elevation Gain: 1,070m

Hiked from Red’s Meadow past Superior Lake, over Nancy Pass and camped beside Minaret Lake. The way down from Nancy Pass was a little complex and it took longer than expected to get to Minaret Lake.

After 4 hours of hiking I was approaching Nancy Pass – the low spot in the middle of the photo.
Gotta hike through those bushes and then up the steep line in the middle

Gorgeous view from the top of Nancy Pass. It was incredibly impressive. I stayed on the pass for 45 minutes to take it all in, WOW was all I could say.
