Trail Report 8-6-19
Well it took until August but thru hikers are finally coming and going over Bishop Pass in droves. Lots of JMT, PCT and Sierra High Route folks are pouring in and out of the canyon so the last week days has finally felt like a normal summer in the high country. .
The trails are mostly wide open for day hikers, just some higher than normal creek crossings to contend with. Sabrina Basin, Bishop Pass Trail, the Tyee Lakes, Chocolate Loop and the Lamarck Lakes are just a few of the more popular day hikes. .
The wildflowers are absolutely stunning right now - lots and lots of color lining the trails and dotting the meadows. .
The skeeters 🦟 are still in full effect...bring the deet and/or a head net if you plan to hike near the water 💦 early or late in the day. (Photos: Hurd Lake, South Lake from the Bishop Pass Trail, Glacial Divide from Lower Desolation Lake, Sunset at Muriel).
