TR- Kennedy Lake

Post by Wandering Daisy » Mon May 14, 2012 10:40 am

Friday we walked in and camped about a mile below Kennedy Lake, Saturday day hikes to Soda Canyon and around Kennedy Lake, caught nice fish. Sunday, walked out. Great trip. Weather was wonderful and no mosquitoes! A few photos:

WD, as always your pictures are beautiful. Thanks for posting.

Thanks for the TR and pictures WD.

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.

I always like your pics but some of us (me for sure) would like to see some with you and your friend(s). Maybe on future trips you might take 1 or 2 (or 6).

I enjoy reading your trail posts. The pictures are fantastic. Is Kennedy Meadows part of Emergrant Wilderness or Hoover Wilderness? I know that they border each other. I look forward to heading out from Levitt Meadows sometime in late June, for a 5 day trip to Dorothy Lake, and back.

Oops, sorry. I did not see that you were in Emigrant. Still it was a great trip, with wonderful weather and great scenery.

Excellent photos. There is a whole lot of not-snow for this early in the season.
