Overnight backpacking trip to Five Lakes Basin in the Grouse Ridge Recreation Area.  Parked at the trailhead near Grouse Ridge NFS campground (6-mile dirt road, rough in places).  We camped between three lakes, nearest the biggest one at 6992 ft.  Lovely area with lots of granite and Lakes and great Fall weather.
