from a hike with no expectations, it was Memorial Day weekend so we figured it best to find somewhere off the beaten track. found these lakes on a map and thought the topography looked interesting, turns out that was a good call, nearly had it all to ourselves. only people we met were some folks at the top celebrating a twenty first birthday, friggin cool place to do it too, not Vegas, not the bar, but backpacking and fishing up in the High Sierra. Hayds was sneaky and asked what vehicle he drove, told me most of the way down the trail we were leaving him some beer, I’m still a little bitter it wasn’t my idea, great friggin idea. we left a case thinking they’d use it better and because when the two of us were twenty-one we weren’t close to cool enough to spend it out in the backcountry.
