I had to be in Jamestown, CA for a BBQ on Sunday afternoon, so I decided to sneak in a quick overnighter at nearby Emigrant Wilderness. I started at the Gianelli trailhead and hiked to Toejam Lake, which was about 8.8 miles each way according to my map. It turned out to be a relatively easy hike without a lot of elevation gain or loss, but there were some pretty nice views almost immediately.
About 3 miles in I stopped to have a snack overlooking what I believe is Chewing Gum Lake
The forecast called for a slight chance of rain. At this point I had a feeling there was more than a slight chance I would get wet.
It did end up raining for about 20 minutes as I was approaching Toejam lake, but when I arrived it stopped almost immediately.
After setting up camp I took a very short stoll up to the top of the hill next to the lake where the views opened up.
I'm assuming this is The Three Chimneys

The next morning I hustled out of there to get to the BBQ in time, so I didn't take many pictures. One of the pictures I did take was of Powell Lake that I somehow didn't notice on the hike in. It's about 2 miles from the trailhead.
