Piute Pass-Upper Desolation 7/14-7/15

Postby Space Cat » Mon Jul 16, 2018 10:45 pm

7/14 - 7/15
Piute Pass/Humphrey’s Basin/Upper Desolation lake

North lake campground 2
Along trail below tree line 2
Piute Pass 0
Upper Desolation Lake 2

We got reports from hikers that skeeters were horrible west of Piute Pass. They must be worse lower in Humphrey’s Basin where it is more wet because we didn’t experience anything that a little DEET couldn’t fix.
