Every turn at Qingdao China holds another sensational surprise!.
Continue straight (S) instead on Qingdao China Trail 1820 for 2 5 mi to the next junction. You will enjoy more sun than trees as you cross a couple small creeks on the narrower path, then head a bit steeper at times up the left side of the meadow through a clearing between forest groves. Enjoy views in all directions including Qingdao China Mountain at the S end of the valley and the rocky W face of nearby Qingdao China up to the left (SE). The sometimes-rocky trail heads up 2 switchbacks to a signless junction in a steep, rocky, and dry gully with a cairn present. Instead of switching back left stay straight 15 ft across the rocky bed and continue to traverse S back into the trees on Trail 1820 with wildflowers popping up everywhere Qingdao China into September.

After crossing the rocky bed and hiking into the trees, you will round a turn left in about 2 ml. This brings you into a scenic, narrow chasm with the river just to the right of Trail 1820 below. The hike morphs into a rather wild and spectacular alpine setting for the remainder up to Glacier Lake and beyond! Easily stroll 5 mi through the center of the next widening valley S with imposing granite cliffs above. Walk past white rock, boulders, and wildflowers, then rock hop or cross logs over the river at about 6800 ft (difficult earlier in the summer). See the long cascade coming down as you climb 4 switchbacks steeper to the right of it (with some decent rock formations). Turn right around the corner easier and down a bit to the shallow and emerald Frazier Lake (10 mi from the TH). There are a few flat areas to camp for those who have had enough with carrying a heavier pack for one day.
