Mammoth Pool Reservoir, August 17

Ran the Dynamic Trio up to Mammoth Pool Reservoir for the day. Still quite a lot of people and limited shoreline to sun and swim on, but we all had fun and burned off some energy. Nothing like a lazy day at the lake!

Coyote Lake, Dinkey Lakes Wilderness

The Zig and I brave mosquito heaven for a glimpse of Coyote Lake. Gorgeous weather, but quite a few people on the trail for the first dinkey lake and at least a dozen people at Coyote. Damn humans! Go home and watch TV like good Americans!!

Potter Pass to the twins

Took the Zig up to do Potter last friday. The Kaiser wilderness was gorgeous, as usual, but there were a ridiculous number of people in the vicinity of upper twin (40+). Have no idea who let the secret out but between the horses and the crowds, Can't say I'd recommend this trip in summer anymore (at least, not as a 'getaway' trip). Still, the flowers were just starting to pop and the weather was perfect. I guess it all depends on what you are looking for...
