Fourth Recess Lake and the (I think ) 1,000 foot waterfall at the far end:

For those who have the time, this photo essay/trip report takes the reader through all 4 recesses, up Pioneer Basin, over the ridges....and down into the Grinnell Lake recess:

One of my favorite TR's of all time Here

I agree, Ken -- one of the best trip reports that I have had the pleasure of reading. I appreciate the author's lack of flourish,all the while, still including incredible descriptions/photos and even a couple of recipes. I will consider this TR a fine template should I ever be inspired to write one, myself.

Well I plan to layover a day in Pioneer Basin so I suppose I could hike over to the Fourth Recess Lake and back, i'll have to see how I feel.

At this point I think I need to put a cap on adding more days into this hike, I have already crossed the 60 day mark. crazy

Had a chance to read that trip report and I agree it was done quite well. Very beautiful locations!

I think I will go ahead and take the cross country route over the same ridge he did between Grinnell Lake and Lower Hopkins Lake, looks to be worth it.
