Nice trip report and a good choice for time of year to go into Nine Corner Lake.

As many of you may know, during fair weather times NCL can be a mob scene with 20-30 cars at the parking lot. And unfortunately, there is a portion of that group that cares NOT about proper wilderness etiquette. A few years back, my friend and I took a summer walk into the area - and the sight that greeted us was appalling - trash strewn about, tents collapsed, equipment left abandoned, empty food cans, beverage cans, paper trash, etc. as far as the eye could see in this particular clearing near the lake.

We hauled as much as we could out of there - but suffice to say, despite the beauty of the spot - I've never been back.
