We're up there a week after Hiker 97, although anticipating a shorter route to 1000 Isle for shakedown/intro purposes. We intend either the high route or River Trail to Thousand Island Lake, a day of downtime to visit Ruby, Emerald and Garnet, then back out the way we came in.

The beta from those of you up there is fantastic. Thank you, and keep it up! :thumbsup:

Here's a pic from June 14 2009. The lifts were running for the last day at Mammoth the day this was taken. I didn't have any trouble getting to 1000 Is., there was trail or boot track the whole way. Finding a dry camp spot on ledges above the lake was no problem. I would guess by now this years conditions would be more favorable than this, but I have not been there this year.

That's a spectacular photo, by the way...

Here's hoping our intrepid OP is out there, right now, in great conditions (and a camera). It should be high 70's up there.
