Enchanted Valley Chalet; hiked in and stayed here around 1976. There were bears outside at night, but during the day we hiked up to the pools above and skinny-dipped!! It was great until a boyscout troop walked by.
“And I said to myself , inside my own mind: ‘What are you doing? You are upon some business that takes you far, not even for ambition or for adventure, but only to earn. And you will cross the sea and earn your money, and you will come back and spend more than you have earned. But all the while your life runs past you like a river, and the things that are of moment to men you do not heed at all.’”- Hilaire Belloc, in “The Four Men”
