I avoid all these during spring, summer & fall ( with the exception of SalmonLaSac ) I refer to them as "roadside attraction destinations", but they do make for fantastic winter scenery and travel especially when the trees are loaded with fluffy white stuff and rivers and waterfalls are showing off their frozen water sculptures.
I'm not going say anything that you folks don't already know.
Snow Lake Trail is beautiful with all the pillowey snow covering the ground & trees. Snow covered Chair Peak is gorgeous on a sunny & moody day
I don't see the appeal for Lake Twenty-Two. This was my first visit as I've been avoiding it for many years. I imagine during spring snowmelt, lots of cascading water from the cliffs is a beautiful sight. Watching avalanches would be pretty cool also. Doubtful I'll ever return
Lake Serene is the better destination in my opinion, with many similarities to Twenty-Two. It will also have the same spring displays. My wife likes this location and I'm sure I'll return from time to time.
Franklin Falls. I'll leave it to the masses, except when it's frozen. Beautiful! Visit on a weekday ( not during winter break ) and approach it from NF 5800 from above. The approach below on NF 5800 is typically clogged with vehicles
