This hike was truly amazing for not having a Alpine Lake I would think it would be apart of Yosemite National Park with the towering Granite walls. The reward was the hot springs and wished I had an extra day for the effort and also to find the other pools. It was worth the bike ride down to beat the Wild crowd. (Oh wait I saw the movie twice I am the WILD crowd ha) I also wished I had brought my TenkaraUSA rod because there where some great fishing holes. I did time it right because the next day we got a foot of snow.
