Once over Ingalls Pass, you could see the huge smoke clouds to the east rising up, but luckily they didn't block our view at all. Made it to the lake and took a break for lunch with an amazing view and our feet resting in the cold water. After that, we walked around the entire lake (highly recommended) and had majestic views of Mt Stuart and Ingalls Valley below.
Unfortunately there were no mountain goats out, but the beautiful clear lake was certainly no disappointment. I would highly recommend this hike to anyone who loves those alpine lake views!
