We recently spent a few days camping along Rock Creek in the Eastern Sierra Nevada. The Little Lakes Valley trail was drier than I’ve seen in the past, but there was still a beautiful wildflower display. Who needs hiking boots?
Here’s my “YouTube tribute”:
And some more photos from a blessed time in the mountains:
July’s “supermoon” made for a “supermoonrise” over Lake Crowley (barely visible, left side of photo).
The Little Lakes Valley trail starts at 10,500 feet in elevation . . . and continues to head (gently) up to a series of . . . little lakes, like this mountain mirror.
This eastern view at sunset (looking toward the White Mountains) was as fabulous as a sunrise.
The French Camp campground (off Highway 395, just up the road from Tom’s Place) is full of streamside seats like this.
To sit and warm my toes at the campfire at the end of a day of high Sierra hiking . . . now that’s my idea of a vacation.
