Our second day, we explored the lake basin to the west, an area I'd never looked into. It contains Linda Lake, the Morning Glory Lakes, and later, Cathedral Basin/Prospect.
On this trip, we started by following Cascade Brook down to the campground and then on the north trail to Linda Lake.

The small pond downstream of O'Hara.

The shallow pond looks nice for swimming.

Linda Lake.

We looped around Linda Lake, and lost a large amount of blood to the resident mosquitos. Linda Lake is pretty from the different angles.
We then followed the south trail over to the Morning Glory Lakes, where we enjoyed a mostly bug-free break at the bridge.
