On to climb Goddard 8:30am.† Easy climb, reached summit around 10:30.† Ron stayed at the south (lower) summit, I did a bit of class 3 to reach the real summit.† Signed summit register, took pictures, and enjoyed the views.† Haze was coming in, especially in the south.† We suspect itís from forest fires.† Descended down, back to camp by noon.† Loaded our packs for the 3 mile cross country hike to Lake 11592, just south of Wanda Pass.† Lots of route finding around the lakes of Ionian Basin.† Lake 11837 had no good route close to the lake, we had to stay high.† Reached our camp at 4:15, chose a site on the peninsula.† Last night got down to 27F, hoping itís a bit warmer tonight.
