It rained about 1.5 miles of the beginning of our hike, but the Ptarmigan Falls pit stop was a nice little reprieve. Of course once you get to the actual lake it's just gorgeous. Not as much ice as I thought there might be, considering...More

Really enjoyed this hike-- Pit toilets at the top and a great place to stop and enjoy the view, picnic, etc. Some people swim, but the water is just above freezing... :-O

It's a small lake, filled with mini-icebergs. Well worth the hike. You won't see anything like it elsewhere in the lower 48.
