Greeting hikers and nature lovers. Once again last week I was up in Desolationland (aka Desolation Wilderness, Lake Tahoe area), hiking one of my favorite Sierra trails, the Eagle Fall Trails. Although the lower part of this trail can get a bit crowded late in the morning and early afternoon, once past the Desolation Wilderness sign above the footbridge, it is much more bucolic and it gets even more so once you get past Eagle Lake. Although on this trip I ventured to Dicks Lake, the trip to the trio of Velma Lakes remains my favorite. In my most recent article for The Examiner, I wrote about the trail to the Velmas (Upper, Middle, Lower) and included a slideshow of 14 photos. Here’s a link:
I’m also two weeks away from my next Whitney trip so you can count on some blog posts and new photos from that trip. Happy Trails to all!
