ten lakes was one of our top choices for the trip, and it was a good one
had to pack up camp because i couldn't get the same spot for saturday night
got going around 7:00 with temps in the 40s
a moderate uphill through the woods took care of the chill soon enough
passed half moon tank just past three miles, then the grade got a little steeper until topping out at ten lakes pass
nice open area with views of surrounding peaks and at least three lakes
dropped several hundred feet into ten lakes basin
arrived at the first lake and wandered around a bit
denny decided to enjoy his hike back out early while john and i did some exploring
went upstream to the two lakes we could see from the pass
really beautiful area perfect for backpacking
it would be nice to relax, explore and take a dip
the ascent back out wasn't that bad, and we finished with the five miles down from the pass
we all decided that was enough for the day
talked the boys into making a visit to crane flat lookout
interesting historical fire tower with some cool stuff inside - worth a stop
had time to hit the crane flat store and relax at camp
would definitely do this hike again but as a backpack

Nice trail with a good amount of tree cover. The sunny spots were never very long. Being this late in the season there was only one little creek running. Half Moon Meadow was kind of cool and a signal that you were going to be getting some AEG. This wore me down pretty good. You hit one little false grassy saddle before the real one. From there the views open up and before long you are looking down at a few lakes. Very pretty. The lakes were spread out and a little more work then other multi lake areas I've been to. We checked out the first one, took a break, and heard a pack of coyotes. At first we thought someone was hollering from jumping in the cold water :lol: . I was dragging a little :oops: and there is no crying in hiking(per Kelly :) ) so I got a headstart on the climb while Kelly and John checked out a couple more lakes. Shortly after I spotted a coyote and verified what we heard earlier. Slow climb but shook it off and had a very nice stroll back to the trailhead. Very nice area and can see why the backpackers like it. I think most people we saw were backpakers including a nice Lady Ranger. Good times!

1st trip
With the Ferguson Fire ongoing, conditions were not optimal for this trip, but it kept most of the people away, so for the first 4 days I felt I had the entire backcountry to myself. I met more bears than people until reaching Glen Aulin.

Day 1: Starting at Tenaya Lake, I headed up Grant Creek Trail, and then over Tuolumne Peak pass into the South Fork of Cathedral Creek. It was a struggle to adjust to the elevation and the weight of all the food and water also slowed me down. Unable to find a trail report on these areas, I ended up carrying way more water than needed. The tarns near 10000 ft were still flowing, and the South Fork was flowing beautifully. I ended up camping out near a granite slickrock cascade in a beautiful area of this fork of Cathedral Creek. The trail routing was fantastic and I was constantly amazed how they had routed the trail.

Day 2: An early climb out of the canyon to beat the heat on a smokey morning, and then onto the Ten Lakes Basin. This area seemed peaceful, and I passed several ponds and eventually reached the main lake, though I couldn't even see to the other side or to the pass in front of me. Over the pass I go, where I encounter a butterfly migration, then down the trail and towards White Wolf. I setup camp the legal distance short of Lukens Lake junction.

Day 3: I pass the turnoff to White Wolf Lodge and head down the steep trail into Pate Valley. The smoke limited visibility to less than a quarter mile all day, so I couldn't see Hetch Hetchy Reservoir, and couldn't even see the river until I reached the bottom. The park service reports the bridge over the Tuolumne River destroyed, but there are still 3 timbers left, and good balance will get you across just fine. Based on the trail conditions it looks like they are running horse pack trains down there brining down materials to begin to rebuild it next year. I continue up river and find a great campsite. Unfortunately for me, right at dusk a large bear comes wandering in within 70 yards, and I yell to scare it away. Stood guard for an hour with no sign of it returning, but didn't get much sleep that night as the slightest noise had me wondering if it returned.

Day 4: I wake up after what little sleep I got and find my bear barrel untouched (Yosemite requires food canisters - neither hanging nor sacks are permitted). I walk upriver admiring the creek, and small cascades, before I reach the bypass around Muir Gorge. The waterfalls and sheer walls make the trail detour quite high, much higher than anticipated. But soon enough I am past it and continuing upriver. I pass a small juveline bear, which was an obvious problem bear, based both on its behavior and the obvious tags hanging from both ears. The skies begin to clear slightly and I am able to admire Waterwheel Falls, Le Conte, and California Falls before finding a small campsite late in the evening. I was quite tired from all the elevation gain and fell right asleep.

Day 5: When eating breakfast, a bear strolls up the trail about 10 yards from me, and surprised I yell at it. Turns out to be momma bear, because there is a tiny little furball following her around. They both pick up the pace and luckily don't appear to want any of my cereal. A little bit more climbing, and I enter the flat expanse of the river leading to Glen Aulin. After a short day I setup camp, explore the waterfalls above the camp, and generally relax all day reading a book, watching all the people come and go. The camp has tents for rent, as well as a backpacker campground with 30 sites, running potable water, and the composting toilets, like you find at Indian Gardens, as it is one of the High Sierra Camps.

Day 6: A short 8 miles and a little bit uphill to reach May Lake, the 2nd and last High Sierra Camp I will visit. The place it lightly populated and I generally laze around, watching some people fish.

Day 7: Smokey morning, so I head downhill back to Tenaya Lake and walk along the road and several trails to reach my vehicle.

The second leg of our trip started on Saturday morning at the Backpackers Campground in Yosemite Valley. We broke camp and then made a stop at the general store and then headed back to the high country. The plan was to hike to the Ten Lakes Basin and camp near one of the lakes. We would hike out on Sunday and start the return to Phoenix.

The Ten Lakes Trail is roughly 6.5 miles long and gains 2,000 ft. I started a little bit earlier than everyone else and took my time heading in. I stopped a few times to admire the views of Mount Hoffman and Tuolumne Peak to the east. I want to visit both summits someday. I continued hiking and was met by Kyle near the Half Moon Meadow. From here the trail gains 500+ feet over the next half mile as it climbs to Ten Lakes Pass. Once Kyle and I were up there we took a break and waited for Larry & Chumley to catch up. Liz and Claire were taking their time and would meet us at the lake. The views to the north are just draw dropping! There are so many peaks and so much to explore!

After the pass the trail drops roughly 600 ft into the Ten Lakes Basin. The views on this side are just spectacular. Each lake slowly comes into view and the Grand Canyon of Tuolumne River looms to the north. That is another hike I want to do someday. We continued on and eventually reached one of the lakes at the bottom of the trail. Chumley left us and found a sweet site on the east side of the lake. We made our way over there and set up camp. The girls were less than an hour behind us and joined us at camp.

After getting camp settled, Chumley and I went over to the north side of the lake to have a look around. There is a steep drainage that drops over 3,500 ft into the Tuolumne River. The drop looks non-technical but it was impossible to tell from our viewpoint. After a few minutes we walked over to the east to check out another lake. Again it was just breathtaking! From there we dropped back into camp and spent the rest of the evening enjoying each other’s company over numerous libations!

We woke on our last day and wanted to do some exploring while the girls slept in. Kyle, Chumley and I made a counter clockwise loop that took us by four more lakes. Each one had its own charm as it was nestled in by granite walls. We were at roughly 9,000 ft elevation and there was still some snow near the peaks. I really enjoyed this exploration. We covered over four miles and did some very easy off-trail.

We returned to camp around 11am and finished tearing down camp. From there our group started the hike out. After we got back to the Ten Lakes Pass, Chumley, Larry and I dropped our packs and separated our bear canisters and then walked the mile plus to Grant Lakes. There was an upper lake but Larry and I were spent so we turned around while Chumley made a quick trip to the upper lake. The rest of the hike out was uneventful. We all met back up at the trailhead and then packed up and started the drive home.

I really enjoyed the Ten Lakes area. These lakes are stunning as they are surrounded by granite. This might have been my favorite part of the trip!

Thanks Chumley for putting all of this together and for doing 95% of the driving! It was a great group and Yosemite only gets better with each return visit. I’m already thinking about next summer! The Grand Canyon of the Tuolumne River is calling.

In a week backpacking through Yosemite that included summiting Clouds Rest and a full-moon night summit of Half Dome, how could one even imagine that this hike would be the highlight!?

Chalk this up on your list of places to go. :)

After the miles racked up on previous days, we were all a little bit tired, and the first four miles was a slow and steady climb, followed by another mile of steeper switchbacks. But once on top, the views opened up to what can truly be described as breathtaking. We all admired in awe before descending the final mile to the main lake.

I found a huge campsite on the far side of the lake, and we settled in for the afternoon. 9L and I explored for 90 minutes over 1.5 miles exploring a little bit down the huge drainage toward the Grand Canyon of the Tuolumne River, and then around the second of the 7 Ten Lakes before returning to camp.

Larry revealed that he doesn't know how to start a fire, and Kyle realized that I'm an anal-retentive micromanager. We had brought several beverages with us, so the evening was filled with plenty of laughter. Claire and Liz even composed a song. Something about eskimos. Probably because it was chilly and there was plenty of snow in the surrounding mountains. At least that's my story.

9L finally got the right bear canister lid back, and I found a lost beer. All was right with the world as we all dozed off for the night.

In the morning, 9L, Kyle, and I went for a hike while the girls slept in, and Larry tended to the fire. Two and a half hours, and 4.5 miles later, we returned to camp having visited four more of the 7 Ten Lakes. Each lake is beautiful in a different way, and linked by streams, cascades, waterfalls, and amazing alpine forest scenery. Most lakes have use trails around and between them, but we made a fully off-trail trip between the south lake and 9398. From there, a maintained trail leads back to the main lake.

Back at camp, we packed up and headed back out toward the trailhead. At the crest of the Ten Lakes Pass, three of us dropped our packs and made the side trip down to the first of the Grant Lakes. I continued to the second, which was a great off-trail hike along a continuous 250-foot high cascading stream between the two lakes. Either of these would be worthy backpacking destinations! We saw a couple of marmots and some deer along the way.

An hour and 20 minutes behind the others I put it in overdrive for the 5-miles back to the trailhead, and arrived only a few minutes after them. We packed up and headed to Tuolumne for a bite to eat. There we met 6 guys and a girl from Tempe who had just started the JMT. I was wearing an AZW shirt, and the girl works at Four Peaks. They were HAZ lurkers too. Small world! :)

By 5pm we were on the road back to Vegas, where Larry had some friends who were kind enough to let us break up the drive and crash on their floor. Gotta love a Vegas hookup! Thanks Larry!

Monday we made the final drive home. I dropped off the rental, having totally exploited the bargain price by dropping 1700 miles on it :sl: .
BTW, a Chrysler Town & Country takes 6 adults and all their gear just fine. Satellite radio, DVD video, 110-volt outlets, 6 lighter ports, and 23+mpg at 80-85mph was pretty nice. Including a couple of $5/gallon fuel fills, it still cost us about half the federal reimbursement rate on mileage. Split six ways, I think we all had the least expensive weeklong trip possible. :)

This last trip turned out to be AWESOME despite my earlier and anxious thinking. It's amazing what a shower and large pizza will do for ones will-power. :)

After completing 3 wonderful days with mosquito infested Cloud's Rest, dark and dangerous Half-Dome and sleeping inches away from a bear in Yosemite Valley, our group replenished at the expensive tourist market there in the Village. I purchased some spicy brauts for tonight's self-envisioned campfire feast. [BTW, Chum kindly shared his brauts a few nights earlier when my Mtn House became spoiled by highly chlorinated water. Seems I overly sterilized my filter - lesson learned.]

9L and I sat in the very back of the rented van for the first time and we had a long ride to Ten Lakes; I made an immediate impression by spilling a packet of open soy sauce on him, hehe...So glad I weigh 70lbs more than him ( :wlift: ). Anyhoo...we made it to the trailhead, prepped up (sans Ben who left us the night before), and hit the trail...this time with Parnelli Clairbear who wasn't with us the first leg of the trip (I'm sure the extra estrogen was appreciated by Liz!)

The Ten Lakes trail follows a gradual incline to the north with a large slabbed, rocky area about a mile in. Consider always hiking westerly during this vague section, as it's an easy place to get lost. It continues north to an open and very large, beautiful meadow. The ladies were trailing behind us, so with great dignity, our group-leader creatively formed markers, drawings and snowmen to denote our presence ahead. Very considerate!

Kyle, John and I made it to the first campsites on the south side of the Lake 8947, but Chum had completely vanished. We soon found out, had circumvented the entire lake looking for the ideal campsite for us; I'm sure he found it there on the lonely north side. Very spacious and plenty of firewood.

Each of the lakes in this area drains into another, so there are wonderful streams and waterfalls between each of these gorgeous, crystalline lakes. I think everyone wished they had more time to explore this area. Many of the lakes had little rock islands...so tempting to swim out to - I wished I now had done that.

As I returned from a water run...I saw a odd and slithering lizard that gave me a spook...now that I've Googled, I'm pretty sure it was a "SKINK" of some sorts; I had never seen one of these before and it was definitely a wildlife highlight. I snapped some photos; every time I got close to the rascal, he would become more aggressive; even took a snap at me.

The campfire was very entertaining that evening. Beer supplies had been freshly replenished and Chumley had carried in so many, he had a tough time keeping track of them all. The ladies entertained us with CopaCoChumly parodies and the spicy bruats I hauled in and cooked over the campfire were unforgettable-pure-awesomeness.

The next morning, the ladies slept in while Chumly, Kyle and John went off to explore the lakes to the east...I decided to climb Grand Mountain just to the north (great views). Once we regrouped, we all headed back out...Chumly, John and I took the 1 mile side trip to the first Grant Lake (Chumley climbed 500' up to the second). Kyle guarded our treed packs from a nearby marmot until the girls arrived then hiked out with them. I was the first to return from Grant, so I solo'd out again on the return trip back. Was awesome timing for each of us returned to the vehicle within a few minutes of each other..

We again crashed in Vegas at my friends house and with the "semi-late" evening arrival, I was grateful that I didn't go out for a spanking that night, (although I think 9L was upset about missing..uhhh...ignor this last paragraph...what happens in Vegas, yada)

I think this hike was a definite highlight and I would highly recommend the Ten Lakes area to anyone interested.

This area is incredible, and I'd love to go back and explore it a little more.

The trail is very interesting. It begins in the trees and then wanders through a large expanse of desert and boulders, eventually rising in elevation into grasses and evergreens. Claire and I stuck together, composing lyrical masterpieces while we walked. We followed the path up, along a trickling creek, before sighting snow in a meadow.. and the trip's second (albeit edited for content) tiny snowperson. The trail topped out and revealed distant peaks, and eventually our destination: lakes quietly draped across the valley floor. We descended and eventually found an arrow directing us.. but to where? We wandered for a while and then gave up and returned to the trail to wait. We snacked for a bit before Chumley came back to collect us.

Chumley led us around one of the lakes, and we set up camp. It was perfect. So quiet and serene. Camps and fires were made, and we ate, drank, and laughed as the darkness descended.

In the morning, Claire and I had given distinct instructions to let us sleep in. (Beauty rest?) When we awoke, we made breakfast as the others returned and told us of the lakes and other features they had seen. Eventually it was time to pack everything up, and we ventured back to the car, singing about Chumley Cabana. We searched for signs of our snowperson on the way back, but he (she?) had apparently decided to hike on.

If I get the chance to return to this area, I'd like to explore further and maybe stay an extra night. There is much to be seen in this wilderness... and such is true about the rest of the park too. :)

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
