Beautiful day wandering through the core of the Indian Heaven Wilderness. Temps in the 40s, overcast and windy- but no rain and the sun started to break through the clouds at the very end. Only encountered 3 people all day.

Started from East Crater TH just after noon. All of the wilderness was snow free (which is quite surprising for late October), but the lakes/creeks/streams are all beginning to ice over. Did a clockwise loop up the PCT and then over to Deep Lake where the wind was howling. I had planned to head over to Lemei Rock, but ultimately decided it wasn't worth it in the high wind & fog.

Had to access TH the long way through Trout Lake due to road construction between Stevenson/Carson. This ended up making for a nice fall drive through clusters of Larch trees along Carson Guler Rd.

Larch Trees in color along the drive to the trailhead. Probably another week or so until they are at prime color. No Larch trees seen in the wilderness though
