One word describes this day hike - Exemplary!
Another gorgeous day in the high Sierra. Today's hike of the Sacramento County Hikers hit two alpine lakes - Winnemucca and Round Top - near Carson Pass. The moderately easy 5 mile trail with about 1,200' of elevation gain started at a trailhead at Woods Lake and climbed clockwise to both lakes.
What made this hike special were the proliferation of wildflowers lining the slopes, spectacular alpine scenery, great weather, and dogs. Many hikers were taking advantage of the beautiful weather and taking their pooches out for a walk in the woods.
About a dozen hikers led by Rich Blackmarr participated in today's excellent hike.
