STORMS AND CONVICT CANYON HIKE ~ (28) images
After Starlight I took my normal 3 days of rest, but as that came to an end 3-4 days of stormy weather arrived. I finally got a good day on Oct 5th and decided on a trip up Convict Canyon to Mildred and Dorothy Lakes. The extra effort to get up to the latter lake is worth the effort as the view really opens up. The view of the north side of Red Slate and its appealling couloir is much better too. Even after all the rain, the notorious stream crossing at the old washed out bridge was quite casual. The trail itself may soon be a thing of the past as weather events have done tons of damage to what is a problematic trail to begin with. Still a fine day and well worth the effort.
