You're welcome dougieb. It's funny that I didn't have high expectations from a place that was so accessible. I was just looking for a shortish 3-nighter to take my brother. But I was wowed by the colors of the area: the red peaks, the milky blue lakes, and the sunset . And surprised to not see anyone else in the area. And the bighorn sighting just made it extra special and unforgettable for me too.

The reason is that Parker Creek is not fed solely by seasonal snow melt as most High Sierran streams are--it has the added advantage of being fed by some rapidly shrinking small glaciers. Because of this you get year-round water in Parker Creek even during the fall following a dry winter.


Thanks for the info! I got my wilderness permits and I'm getting excited for my trip!
