We took a hike there Saturday mostly off trail and along the many ridges that separate the North Fork of Highwood Creek, Briggs Creek and Thane Creek.
It was crystal clear with great visibility in all directions.
The water was running high from the snow melt off the high peaks like Arrow and Baldy, both of which could have been skied.
