 Rito Alto and Hermit Peaks from Megan Lake   

Hit Rito Alto and Hermit Peaks last Wednesday from the North Taylor Creek Trail and Megan Lake. Right now it's very scenic with several waterfalls gushing and the wildflowers are starting. I didn't see any previous info on my exact ascent via the Northeast face of Rito Alto and descent from Hermit Pass direct to Megan Lake. I don't know why you would ever want to bother with Hermit Pass Road when you can get this scenery and solitude. Warning: Heavy stretches of Willow-Whacking in the Megan Lake Basin but still worth it. Check out the link below for the full TR and lot of pictures. Wildlife, Alpine Lakes, wildflowers, waterfalls, summits, solitude, Not getting caught in a Tstorm. What more could you want.
