Winnemucca Lake & Round Top Mt. on 07/07/2010 15:36:08 MDT Print View

I took the boy and his friend for a overnight trip to the Mokelumne Wilderness off HWY 88 near Carson Pass. Its about a 7 mile out and back adventure. We had mild temps both day and night. It was windy at times but overall it was perfect backpacking weather. About 40% of the trail was still covered in snow which added even more adventure for the young hikers. Mosquitoes were only a problem at the TH. There is still a lot snow up the Sierras which adds even more spice to any backpacking trip. Here are a few pictures:

There was limited open space around the lake--We took what was given to us.
