This was the second backpack in Chumley's Yosemite adventure. It was nice to do some trails that nobody in the group had done before and this one did not disappoint. The hike in is nice but it really opens up once you hit the top of the pass above the switchbacks. The views are amazing-- granite mountains, canyons, and lakes. We headed down and Chumley found us a killer campsite on the far side of the closest lake away from the other backpackers.

We made camp, dinner, and had some beers. In the morning Chumley, 9L, and I went to go do some exploring. We headed up some use trails to check out some of the higher lakes and then off-trail cross country to check out a further one. They're all spectacular and surrounded by cascades and creeks. This area is absolutely phenomenal.

We returned to camp for a short rest and everyone packed up and headed out. Larry, Chumley, and 9L hit Grant Lakes on the way back. I rolled my ankle really badly the week before on a night hike and that foot was getting pretty sore after that many days of hiking in a row so I opted out and headed to the trailhead with Liz and Claire. It was a really nice hike back and beer was waiting for us in a bear box at the trailhead.

Thanks to Chumley for organizing this and inviting me along. I can't imagine having a greater week with a nicer crew :D
