we decided to make the drive up to Mineral King, a place i have dreamed of visiting for years. man it was worth the wait. pretty fun and wild drive up there, where we learned at the ranger station we should marmot proof our car. apparently it's a problem unique to mineral king. they had a zillion tarps so we grabbed a couple and wrapped my car like a big christmas present :lol:

mineral king valley is utterly spectacular. as soon as we got on trail, there were deer, marmots and grouse everywhere. pretty sharp little climb up to the lake. we got drizzled on a bit. we hit the lake just before the sky really opened up for a while. the lake is gorgeous. couple cracks of thunder, so unfortunately we cut our time there short and bolted. heavy rain for the first few miles back. it cleared very quickly when we got back into the valley and afforded some incredible views, so we lollygagged it.

despite the crazy weather, this was probably our favorite day in the park. really amazing place. i'd love to come back again and blow out some big stuff up there. LOT of options.
