Terrace Lake, Ptarmagin Lakes, Fisher Lake 7/18/02

I started at around noon Tonga ridge trail in good shape until turn off for Fisher lake. The first part is difficult to follow due to deep snow. Best bet is to climb to 5200 feet were the trail crosses and starts to descend. The drop into Fisher is easier to follow and much less snow. Cross the outlet of Fisher lake and pick up fisherman's trail to Ptarmigan lakes. Trail is fairly easy to follow, drop down to Lower Ptarmigan and follow rock slide on western shore. Cross the outlet of Upper Ptarmigan and there is a great campsite on northen shore of the upper lake.

Left for Terrace Lakes in the morning, I climbed out of Upper Ptarmigan in a se direction. Pick up the creek and climb to both of the Terrace Lakes pretty easy cross country.

Bugs were above average but not a trip killer. Above average route finding ability required until melt out, which won't be too long at the rate it is going. Great Trip aprox 14miles round trip.
