We had time for a short, two night, trip over to the eastern Sierra Nevada. We did not even decide on a destination until we were on the road. Where did we end up? I'm not going to tell, but the rest of the story is now posted to our blog -

Great country Monte. The high Sierra meadows are such a treat to hike into.

 

In years past we have hiked down into the North fork Stanislaus from the hwy 4 trailhead.

Always a treat when we found some nice flows this time of year.

 

I have never understood with the science and fishing groups why fish ladders weren't

placed on these dams.

 

Oh well sure enjoyed your trip.

Great to see Julie out hiking again.

I had forgotten about the Lahontons up there! 

 

edit to add:

 

I looked up the last year that Lahontans were found in Walker Lake - it was 2010. I was curious because I used to go out there to see the loons and my recollection is that they both disappeared from the lake at the same time  - no more food for the loons  The informational signs in the Walker Canyon went up after the flood in1997.

Thanks for the lovely interlude in the high mountains. The Lahontan cutthroat is an impressive survivor of the old Pleistocene lakes. Good to see they are still hanging in there. 

 

Happy to see the Lady is happy and mobile with the new knee.

 

Thanks for sharing your adventure!

 

Tony
