60 Lakes Col??

Postby gdurkee » Fri Dec 14, 2007 11:35 am

This is embarrassing, but a friend just asked the name for the pass between Gardiner Basin and 60 Lakes Basin and my tiny brain is not coming up with it and it's not in Sierra South. 60 Lakes Col comes to mind, but I'm not sure that's it. Also, I think it might be called Ghost Mule Pass, but I can't find a reference for that either.

It's a bad sign when neither Vance Vredenburg (who's spent 10 years there) or I can remember.

Anyone here know??


Mucho thanks,

g.

George, thats the name I've always referred to it as. I'd give up remembering the name of the pass anyday in exchange for ten years there ;)

No mention of it in Secor...that doesn't mean it doesn't exist though. If it does, it makes me curious where the name came from though

Ghost Mule

The very last message I posted before the forum went bloop was to confirm that 60 Lakes Col was, in fact, Ghost Mule -- local usage. I'm pretty sure the youth group -- 3 Corner Round -- were the ones who named it that.
