Trail past blue lake is tough to find in a few spots, but it was a great place to camp and catch a few rainbow trout!

beautiful blue skies, gorgeous views, great escape from hot hazy valley below. took some effort to follow trail markers from Blue to Donkey and even tougher from Donkey to Baboon, but that was the icing on the cake

The trail from Lake Sabrina to Blue Lake is fairly arduous, especially with heavy packs though the scenery is spectacular. The trail from Donkey Lake to Blue Lake is sometimes hard to follow since it’s not well marked.

Most beautiful backpacking experience! Despite the altitude sickness after acclimating myself and years of hiking. Beautiful, you could see the desert in the valley on one side while standing on snow. This hike was hard mainly because of the aforementioned altitude sickness, and the snow. See my photos of the street signs all covered. I do recommend going in winter though as long as you can handle the elements and have the right gear. Wanted to see more wildlife, but once ai came across fresh mountain lion tracks in the middle of the wilderness that was plenty !
