I did a number of backpacks into those areas three decades ago before I changed from bushwhacking fisherman to photographer. Those were the days when rainbow trout still were found in most of the lakes. Days when Beehive Meadow was the center of the universe for spooky black bears both day and night. I'd bet not much elxe has changed since then given the generally light use. Only lake we've visited more recently has been Kibbie since it is a short hike to a uniquely pleasant lake. Outside of Kibbie, maybe my favorite was Ardeth Lake high up on a ridge with picturesque sierra junipers above on the rocky nose of Mahan Peak with expansive views beyond. ...David
