Emigrant Wilderness - Granite Dome, Lewis Lakes, Ridge Lake on 07/20/2012 23:43:44 MDT Print View

I'm planning a weekend trip up to the lakes at the base of Granite Dome. Any suggestions for campsites? Any lakes up there better than others for quasi-sheltered spots? I've been digging up past trip reports and pictures and it looks like slim pickins. Also, any trees tall and sturdy enough to hang one days' food for two people or should I bring the can?

Thanks!

Here's a recent TR that might help. I'll probably be doing same weekend trip in a few weeks. Looks like a granite wonderland!

There are nice campsites at Ridge Lake and Iceland Lake. There are likely other spots too. I looked at my pictures and there are trees at both lakes that would allow for a bear hang.
