Hay Pass Trail

  Tom, may see you there.  We are looking at the same area around the same time.  Yes, the snow pack may be a concern this early in the summer, I believe it is heavier then normal this year.

Went to Golden lakes over Falls Creek Pass a few years ago, looking to go back this summer (2010).  Looking at mid July and pushing further North.... Camp Lake, Snow Bridge Lake, up into Knife Point Glacier area.... What do you know about the snow
    pack this year?  thoughts?

I backpacked over Hay Pass (from Boulder Lake Trailhead to to Golden Lakes) last July 25. Easy ascent to pass except for stream crossings, trail gets faint for about 1/4 mi.above Dennis
Lake (quite a view down to the lake. At the outlet of the unnamed lake (Beth Lake???) below the pass on the west side (at head of North Fk Boulder Cr.) water was high & swift, so I routed eastward around to the head of the lake crossing 2 inlet streams where they braid apart. through thick willows- a slow deal, but better than hip-deep swift water at the outlet. Great cutthroat fishing at Victor Lake (on fish to 19) during a hail storm. Guess the fish thought the  
hail was a swarm of bugs. Saw nobody else from Victor lk. to Golden Lks and back (3 days). Not the most spectacular scenery in the range (peaks are mostly round-topped, not like the jagged peaks to the north or south), but no people and great fishing (Golden Lakes had lots of 14 goldens but they were not biting- typical of goldens). Going in again this July, only farther this time, north of Golden Lakes. Anybody going that way?
