Bishop Pass Trail

Labor Day Weekend was upon us and we were planning on backpacking the North Fork Big Pine Creek Trail around Seven Lakes but could not get walk-in wilderness permits for the weekend.  Luckily I had a backup idea, and we resorted to Bishop Pass Trail which started at South Lake.  We spent Friday night at a drive-up campground called Horton Creek before we headed up into the mountains.  Pictures from this trip can be found here.

Cottonwood Lakes

Hadn’t been up to the Sierras in a while, so over the 4th of July weekend I took a three day backpacking trip to Cottonwood Lakes near Lone Pine, California.  Camp was set up between lakes number Two and Three.  On the second day I hiked to Long Lake and High Lake before turning around at the base of New Army Pass. The weather was perfect the whole time but the mosquitoes were out in full force.  A full set of photos can be found here.
