A view that probably less than 10 people have ever seen. I call this Island Bird Lake:

Any hints where? I got to go to this lake one day. Just jaw dropping! I am guessing somewhere near Ionian Basin or Mt. Shakepeare. Just a shot in the dark though!

That is the lake that is out to the West of Lake 10,565 that is West of Observation Peak. Some bush whacking is needed but with a proper route description I can give you will make it fairly easy.

Looks like on the topo that the easiest way is from the Dumbell Lakes to Lake 10,565? Looks like only class 2 on the topo? I have to hit every nook and cranny in that basin. Between Amphitheater Lake, Marion Lake, Dumbell Lakes, Windy Point and Lake, etc., it all looks gorgeous! To think I walked right by all of this on the JMT...what a bummer! Should have stopped to smell the roses (maybe phlox or polomoniums). :wink:

Actually in my opinion the easiest way to get to Lake 10,565 is to cross what I have taken to calling Adventurer Pass due to the fact that by going into this seldom visited area you are certainly an adventurer! By crossing this pass you can get there in just a few hours or less from the JMT.

I need to add it to the cross country passes section.

And to make this not just a talking post here is lake 10,565: When it comes to remote cross country lakes this one is certainly a favorite of mine.
