Picture of Golden Lake

Postby cowboypacker » Thu Aug 06, 2009 5:30 pm

I am looking for a picture of Golden Lake above Mono Creek. I am researching to see if I can descend down the back mountain from the Hilton Lake Basin. I have been to the top above the Hilton Lakes and it opens to a flat plateau above Golden Lake. Due to declining daylight I could not go further to see the decent into Golden Lake. I would like to make a loop via the Hiltons and over returning via Pioneer Basin and Mono pass to the trailhead at Mosquito Flats. Not sure if I could decend to the lake, but topo wise it looks doable. Thanks for any info.

HI Cowboypacker

I do not have a picture of Half-Moon Pass, but I found a picture taken of Golden
Lake from it.

It is a class 3 and is steep especially on the western side where there is a small
chute as I remember that is to be done by an experienced backpacker only.
