Beautiful area.  Easy canoe voyage across the lake, nice open switch backs to the alpine and easy terrain spotted with turquoise lakes in Marble Meadows.  Complete with Karst sinkholes, caves and fossils galore.  Easy camping, good water (even after this very dry summer) and tall, but not difficult, mountains.  The whole group successfully climbed both peaks we set out for, and five of us added Marble Peak as an extra (a bit spicy and exposed).  Spent the one rainy evening/night in Wheaton Hut luxury.  Could have easily done the trip beginning Saturday morning early (we started Friday afternoon).  Wind at our backs both ways across the lake!
