Oct. 19 2018. I started on the trail by noon. With the shorter light hours this time of year I was in a time crunch. The added wrong route didn't help me either. There are several trails you can pick up.
Great scenic views and nice lakes to camp at. Things are starting to freeze at night including me!

The back part of the trail gets thin. I'd recommend GPS to help keep you on track.

Next time I do this trail I"ll give my self more time. 2.5 days will make it much more enjoyable.

This area is Desolation Wilderness and you do need a pass!
