Paradise Valley
The Rae Lakes Loop takes you from one lovely valley to the next and our 7.1 mile hike up Paradise Valley to our camp in Middle Paradise was just a taste of what was to come. The only thing that wasn't paradise about this valley were the annoying face flies (I think they got their name because they like to hover around your face as you hike).
