For those who are not yet tired of seeing reports of Indian Heaven color. I had thought to go up to Lemei Rock from the east, but I don't think the color is as good on that trail, despite it's many other charms, so I decided to do the Junction Lake/Blue Lake/Rock Lake loop from the East Crater Trailhead as I thought it has the best fall color in Indian Heaven.
Note that the Thomas Lake Trail between Rock and Sahalee Tyee Lakes is fairly wet and soggy.
A different kind of color

next to Rock Lake
The trail between Rock and Junction lakes is not an official trail, but is in pretty good shape

It wouldn't be Indian Heaven in the fall without soggy trails.
I was there on Saturday; we did a short lollipop from the Thomas Lake Trailhead to Rock Lake and Blue Lake. I found a nice little boot path on the southwest side of Blue Lake (beyond campsite #12) that goes halfway up the cliffs to a viewpoint above the lake.
