|NATIONAL PARKS QUICKLINKS|
I wasn't able to do a full backpack, so I took the one available day and made a day hike out of it. Starting point: trailhead near Butterfly Lake. I followed the Highline Trail to Naturalist Basin, went past Evermann Lake and ate lunch at the shore of Jordan Lake. then I did a loop of the rest of the basin lakes. It was a gorgeous day. Bugs were pretty bad in the more forested sections, but not in open areas. Fortunately, there was also a breeze and spots of misty rain.
