"My best friend and I were backpacking over Memorial Day 2015. The night before we'd camped at Snag Lake, made a detour to the Cinder Cone in the morning, and ended up at Lower Twin Lake.

It was early in the season so there were still tons of downed trees and debris everywhere but this little spot happened to fit our tent.

It was so quiet and pristine."
