My husband Daniel and I went to go do a speed climb of Mt. Daniel and had an absolute blast. The alpine lakes wilderness is gorgeous, and we found the route to be a fun mix of flat, uphill, scramble, snow, etc. Made the summit in 3 hours and 52 mins. Snapped some pics, including Dan hugging "his" summit. We used the reliable water source at Peggy's Pond on the way up and down, and that worked well for us. Suaw lake below is probably good too, we didn't really stop and check it though to confirm.

Excited to see more fast times go up. This one is a ton of fun.
