Mammoth Crest > Lake George > Duck Pass TrailheadDreaming, scheming, planning. That pretty much was the theme of morning chatter on our last morning.As we climbed up lớn the Mammoth Crest leaving the views of Deer Lakes và surrounding mountains behind, we were greeted with a new world. A world of whitebark pine, pumice, red rock, open landscape, và on the horizon iconic views of the Minarets/Ritter/Banner. After ooooing & aaaaing for a bit, we studied the Sherwins Mountains across from us. Hiking the traverse of the Sherwin Mountains has been on my các mục for a couple of years và this was the perfect view to check it out. While boogying down the trail many day hikers headed up the crest. It was time khổng lồ take one last dip in a Sierra lake, have a snack, savor và reflect on our experience together và laugh. Thanks Beiswenger sisters for one fine trip. #freestylingit"/>

Duck Lake Peak > Duck Pass > Deer LakesStarted this winner of a day casually sipping my coffee after a very bright super moon lighted our tents the entire night. I actually packed a few luxury items on this trip, my crocs and lots of fresh food, but it turns out I needed an eye mask more. First objective of the day was to lớn climb Duck Lake Peak, elevation 12,077 feet. This peak is also referred khổng lồ as Valentine Peak on some maps. The route up is class 2 & straightforward with easy walking through white Bark Pine, then turning to lớn fun, solid đá hoa cương boulders. The climber is rewarded with 360 degree views of eastern Sierra peaks surrounding the Mammoth area. Highly recommended. After descending the peak, we took a quick dip in Duck Lake then headed cross-country to Deer Lakes. This sweet little section is also part of the Sierra High Route. Deer Lakes did not disappoint. It is settled in a dramatic cirque with Mammoth Crest rising above. We leisurely pitched our tents, cleaned up, ate dinner, & sat on a large rock chatting about life & relationships. A great over to a good day.
