The Crazy Mule, and the Big Meadow down to Dog, Tallulah Lake areas are
really nice to.
Still planning to visit those pretty lakes at the mouth of Thompson, or was this
a shortened trip ?

Thanks!

I shortened the trip to just 4 days (bummed around Yosemite and the eastern Sierra for the rest of the week). Have to hit those Thompson Canyon lakes another time...

Great trip report! And I couldn't agree more about the idiocy of how the trails were constructed in the whole Benson Loop area. You're lucky you were off-trail for most of it!

Very nice, I like the Oregon Sidalcea.
The flower garden mix looks just like the ones on High Trail out of Agnew.
