Last week adventure pal P and I hiked out of the Crabtree Trailhead into the Emigrant Wilderness. It was a great day for hiking, never got hot, even on the exposed switch backs. The Crabtree parking lot was full, but we saw few people on the trail.
Here's the bridge at the beginning of the trail.
The south shore of Camp has plenty of room to spend a summer afternoon. Wonder why I don't go out there more often! These crazy reflections are looking toward the north shore.
Phlox are still blooming.
Mariposa Lilies are few and far between.
We hiked passed the trail intersection to Bear Lake a half mile or so down to the bottom of the next canyon before deciding to go back to Bear. Good decision. We ended hiking between 8 and 9 miles as it was!
