NF Big Pine Creek - 1st and 2nd Lake

Postby littlefish » Mon May 04, 2015 9:22 am

May 1-3, 2015. 1st Lake a little down but still beautiful; inlet from 2nd Lake dry with small input from "invisible" creek. 2nd Lake down, looks like at least 40 ft. Someone please tell me they are working on the lake. No creek flow into 2nd Lake. Beautiful but sad. Plenty of wind and not many fish. 1st Lake tragedy. The low point of the trip was to see this fire damage at a favorite 1st Lake campsite, near the inlet from 2nd Lake. Why do people do stuff like this? No fires means no fires.

I do have a couple of pics looking towards Temple Crag. This was taken near the inlet from 2nd lake May 1, 2015.
