Emigrant Lakes 2016

By Mark Beresford | Comments 6

The boys spent three days backpacking 8-9,000 feet up in the Sierra Nevada mid-October. It was perfect weather during the day, although cold enough at night to be a bit uncomfortable sleeping on the ground.

We gathered around the camp fire at night.

We fished for dinner.

We all caught fish and had as much to eat as we wanted!

My survival knife came in handy for preparing dinner.

We kept the tents at home and slept under the milky way and shooting stars just as it should be.

A mule train passed by, taking supplies to a group camped out on the other side of the lake.

Stopping for the horses to drink.

It was tough hiking on the mountain trails, but we had a wonderful time, shared many stories, and enjoyed new experiences. Until next time….
