So, my wife has surprised me and a friend with a trip to the Mt. Sneffels/Blue Lakes area. I am looking for suggestions. Here are the details:

Trip is August 4th (lasting 3-4 days)
Looking for a 1-2 nights at or around the Blue Lakes (love the pictures from the camping at the lower lake)
We are coming from 2000 ft. elevation, but regularly hike in the Smokies (6500')

What are some do's/don'ts for this area/elevation?
Bear Canister necessary?
Weather expectations for August 4th?

Anything you can for planning this trip is appreciated.
