Crystal clear pristine lakes all to yourself. Granite peaks that rise straight from the water and pierce the sky with their severity. We found our HAPPIEST PLACE! Chad and I explored more of the Desolation Wilderness yesterday to get to some lakes we would have all to ourselves. We accomplished our mission with a hike to Twin Lakes and Island Lake. This hike allows for an 8 mile drive up to wrights lake, then a 4 hour round trip from there will get you far into the Desolation Wilderness without having to hike for  few days! The water is pretty cool, but incredibly refreshing! Tips if you plan to go:

  • Bring plenty of water – we love our High Sierra Hydration Pack
  • Bring food
  • Wear Layers
  • Wear hats and broad spectrum sunblock. And still plan to get some sun.
  • Get on the Trail by 10am.
  • Check the weather, lightning storms are common up there and you don’t want to get stuck in one.
  • Make sure pets pads are prepared, Marcus lost a bit of his pad yesterday hopping around on the granite.
  • Bring a camera and be prepared to have your mind blown by beauty!
