We camped at Lower Lamarck Lake and the third Wonder Lake. The trip could have been covered in a dayhike, but we were intent on relaxing in the High Sierra.

Thank you Schmalz for another enjoyable TR and pictures. The waterfalls as you
mentioned can be really great in that area during an average or above average
snow year. Love the photo of Callie laid out on the mat. :)
Just to let you know, there is no red highlighted route showing which route you
took as you have done with your previous trips.

Thanks for the kind words and the note about the red route. I chose to not include it because I do not want people to attempt to follow the route I draw on the map through that section (I don't use GPS to track it for me). I'm on the fence about this one though as my next trip will have more offtrail and I'll probably want to show my route. I may switch it back up. I appreciate the help though :)

Thank you so much. I have been eying a trip to that area. Between the exploration of Wonder Lakes and a dayhike to Lamark Col, I think there is enough there to keep me busy for a while. Gorgeous photography.

Not too bad. I made a post in the mosquito conditions thread.
