Just finished a loop of The Grand Canyon of the Tuolumne and Ten Lakes Basin. Skeeters were 1-2 everywhere.

Bump.

Any recent reports from the Sabrina Basin area? Looking specifically for Hungry Packer or Midnight Lakes area. Any and all beta would be appreciated. A few friends and I are heading up that way next week. Would like to gauge how much DEET to bring (if that's even possible). :cool:

Thanks!

Maybe my wife and I saw you, in Sabrina Lakes Basin last week. Went in 8-13, out 8-17.

Sabrina Lake, Blue Lake, Donkey Lake, Emerald Lakes all 1 (loved that!).

Few people too for such a popular area, although we changed plans (stayed at Blue Lake instead of Moonlight and day hiked to the others) when the passing trail guide said he was heading his loaded mules to Sailor Lake.

I suppose it is about the same everywhere now, but a short loop out of Devil's postpile to Minaret lake, cross country to Ediza and out Shadow a 1 everywhere. I think I saw one one evening the whole trip.
