Trip Report

After scrambling Devon Mountain we contoured the north side and headed towards the winding trail leading to the largest of the Devon Lakes beneath Mount Willingdon. The air was warm and humid and I thought we'd probably get some storms coming through (as forecasted) in the evening so we wanted to get to our bivy before any 'weather action' started.
