Thanks for the report and pictures, Dave. I especially like that last shot of Kibbie from the unconventional (and hard to reach!) angle. Cool about the osprey sighting, too. I see them often enough in the lowlands, and had been wondering if they ever visited backcountry lakes.
If you've been searching for the best source of information and stimulating discussion related to Spring/Summer/Fall backpacking, hiking and camping in the Sierra Nevada...look no further!
