7/13/2019 - climbed Mt Lago - directions were poor and misleading, lots of scree. After having to turn back near summit
we ascended gullies to East ridge and then to summit.
Slipped and cut my right hand on rock. Vicki stopped bleeding with panty liner.
hiked back to Lake Doris
7/14/2019 - hiked out and drove home, stopped at Mazama for ice cream
Flowers very nice near Slate pass and other areas of similar elevation.
Took ice axes in to base camps but did not need them or haul them up mountains.
