Video of Rae Lakes Backpacking trip, 7/30 - 8/3/16

Postby MRrogers » Fri Sep 23, 2016 2:07 pm

All, I previously posted a trip report of my backpacking trip to the Rae Lakes area from August 2016 and now I am posting a link to a video I made of the trip. Hope you all find it to be enjoyable to watch and don't forget to crank up the volume.

Maverick, I posted my topic on the backpacking section but it does not seem to show up. Can you help me? Where did you find my posting on HST?

I love to read about and see photos of places I've been. I like to see how different things look through another lens. Since I can't go back to all of my favorite places, I like to see TR's about them. Thanks for a good one.

I merged your old thread with the new one as it was a continuation of the same report. Scroll up/click on the previous or page 1 links to find the original TR. :thumbsup:

Maverick, ok but for me seems too hard to find my new posting and it would be better as a stand alone posting.

One of the most beautiful areas in the Sierra. I went there three times but never saw the lake (s) in the middle. I did you trip on two with Mike (age 7 & 11). We came in from kearsarge and exited over baxter.

About the pic of Mike (11yo) in front of Baxter Lake and the huge cairn. Ater that day someone told me that near the lake (I imagine near this cairn) there is a warm springs. Does anyone know anything about this?
Below is Mike at Baxter Pass.
