Oh, and here's my recent addition to the Lake 11818 portfolio. Taken about 3 weeks ago.

Shout out to lostcoyote, it was a pleasure meeting you down below Lake Martha. Hope your friend with the bum ankle made it out OK.

Yes. There is only one campsite and I do mean only one! There was a small pile of rocks tied with a rope so wondering what the deal was I picked it up to find a small bottle lake register.

I also drank from that lake. :\ The Red Copeopods and the water fleas where so thick on every single inch of shore line that it was completely impossible to get a clean bottle of water. I even tried to run water through my shirt but it did not work. I just gave up and drank the fleas. :drinkers:

Shirtless leader was named Rob, who is a damned strong hiker for a guy approaching 60 (or any age for that matter). Here he is - as well as my wife - at your referenced "hashpipe" lake. Likewise, I was unaware of a register there...something to look for on a future visit.

(I'll spare you the photo of him sunbathing in his speedo at our near-Martha camp...)

Your about 15 feet from the register in that photo. That small patch of dirt to the left is the only camp.

The two notches with snow on the far left are the ones I came down. The one on the right is the one I thought I would die in.

Weird red metamorphic rock on the shelf between Goddard creek area and Ionian Basin. This is part of a crimson seam that runs vertically up the wall of the shelf. This area is a jumbled, twisted geological wonderland. August 2012.


i saw some pink veins in that region.... wonder how close my patch was to your patch?

Probably the same vein. You can see it from 500 yards.
