Melting Fast Eastern Sierran Nevada Range, John Muir Wilderness, California
It's nice to stay at a lake for a few days and watch how fast ice melts. I carried 2 pairs of shoes so I could walk into the ice water on this backpacking trip through the Sierra. It was nice feet were pretty confortable and I wasn't complaining while in that cold icey water. I might of been regreting the extra weight on the long way up the mountain but the way back down is always easier!
Don't you just want to just belly flop into the lake right now? LOL!
