Nice pics, thanks. Brings back nice memories of my trip with Tom. He's a great guide to the Upper Kern.
If I'm correct, then the pic with the three shelters next to the lake is where Tom and I found an abandoned pack with junk, poorly covered by some ratty tarp. It was more than we could hike out, so we reported it to the Rangers when we finished the hike. If that's the same place, was the junk gone? (Hope so).
