Ascent Trip ReportNeeded a little hike at elevation as a prelude to Mt Dubois on Fri. Laura Newman recommended Thomas Peak. Nice trail hike to Island Lake, then up talus/scree to a ridge, then followed the ridge to the summit. Forecast was for 20% chance thunderstorms, and yes, it hailed on us as we were descending the ridge. Such a beautiful area with no people!
