My hike this day began at the lower Mineral Creek area parking and TH Start and ended 3.8 miles up having had the delight of viewing scenic Ice Lake at 12,257feet. I ended my hike in at .75ml further, off trail at high altitude and large (several acres worth) Fuller Lake at 12,585ft.

Access via the Ice Lakes Trail, the main "upper" Ice Lakes Basin lies above 12,000ft and is one of the most interesting and scenic high-altitude basins in the San Juans. This whole basin is surrounded by sharp and colorful peaks all well above 13,000 feet. Due to these surrounding high peaks, once arriving in the upper basin area you cannot see out except to the east through South Mineral Creek Valley. There are also many beautiful wildflowers on this route along with small tundra flowers in the basin itself :DANCE:
