I have hiked up to the upper lake several times but have never done the scramble up Mt. Lena. It was really foggy at the lake when I arrived on the 3rd so I had my doubts whether the Lena climb was in the cards. Woke up early on the 4th to clear sunny weather so it was go time. Hiked the Scout Lake trail to a small unamed lake and then assended Mt. Lena via the stream/avalanche chute which was snow free. Great 360 degree views from the summit.
