Young Lakes - 8/30/2011

Postby dereksurfs » Mon Sep 05, 2011 12:02 pm

I just took my son up to Young Lakes out of Tuolome Meadows last week for our first backback trip the Sierras. Although we have visited these areas before. We are new to backpacking and wow, does it open up a whole new slew of photo opps. :D Flowers were still surprising good for this late in the season.

Nice to see there's still some green up there. Might want to edit your title date.

Thanks rlown, the amount of late season wildflowers and green was impressive indeed. Also thanks for the catch on the date. Here's some more green by the upper lake along with a little snow:

Welcome to HST and thanks for sharing these nice photos (like the touch of light on the peak in the last photo of your first post!)

Beautifully captured, I really like the Milky Way/night sky shot with the tent glowing. Very nice thanks for sharing.
