Hiking out of Agnew meadows July 6 (spending four nights)

Postby Smnold » Fri Jul 01, 2011 8:45 pm

I'll do my best to post some pictures and skeeter reports once I return on 7-11. I'm leaving out of Agnew Medows July 6 with a couple different idea's. Nothing set in stone. I may try to stop by 1000 island, Garnet or Ediza if possible. Depending on the snow levels and trail conditions I may set up base camp around Shadow.

Stay tuned ...

We'll be about 2 days behind you, doing the same trip. I'm thinking the lakes over 9500 will be frozen. I know camping isn't allowed at Shadow itself, are there any good spots nearby?

I may be heading that way on the 9th. Just beyond the west end of Shadow are camp sites. Others are nearby, from 1 to 2 miles. Snow may complicate things.

Well, hitting the trail at Agnew Meadows tomorrow, going out to 1000 Island Lake, but we will see what the conditions give us. Should be interesting.
