PICT0038.JPGHello, I have read this site many times over the years and have posted just a couple of items. Just wanted to share a great trip I took to Hutchings Creek. Basically I left TM and hike through Vogelsang into the Lewis creek and up along the balcony path over the merced river drainage. Scrambled over some lovely talus up into the Hutchings creek area beneath Lyell and Maclure. The area reminded me of the Bear lakes area. Lots of lovely green swales connecting small lakes together. We originally were going to head to the headwaters - lyell fork of the merced but ended up staying for a couple of days. I'm going to try and insert some pictures. Anyways, just trying to contribute to this cool community.
