Mount Richardson was one of the last (I still have a few more) peaks on my more "urgent" hit list. So when Hidden Lake had sites and the weather still looked amazing (we haven't had a proper fall in at least 3 years!), I booked them.
We hiked over to Skoki Lakes the first day, because I've only seen them on a super smoky day previously. Then up Mount Richardson the second, where we ran into Alan Kane.
