Thank you so much! That was very informative. This will only be my second time backpacking so I am currently investigating intermediate trails!

Little Lakes Valley and 20 Lakes Basin both are great places for beginners with fantastic scenery, good fishing, and you can reach a lake within 30 min's with minimal elevation gain (less than a couple of 100 ft in 20 LB, and less than that in LLV).

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

Those pictures are fantastic too by the way. I really enjoyed them, thank you.

And yes listen to maverick. Pick up a Mono Divide High Country Trail map from Tom Harrison Maps. Good quality maps.

Enjoy :D
