We got a few hours away from Glacier View Cabins this afternoon and visited Shannon Lake. The last time I was there was in the winter about 15 years ago with Dale Caton from Valhalla Mountain Touring. The Shannon Lake Forestry Road sign on the mainline road is still there and the trail leaves from the switchback about 1.8 km up that road. Trail steepish but in good condition. Some people up fishing and catching lots of little cutthroats. 1 hour up and 30 minutes or so down.
