Ok Gary just hopped online. So I just realized when I was first looking at it I was oriented south. When I'm looking at Laurel lake and have north oriented to the top of my screen the lake I'm questioning is to the west. Directly on the opposite side of the mountain as upper Laurel. I think it's Lost Lake.. but I'm not 100% on that. My Google earth won't show a name but I believe looking at my hard maps it's Lost Lake. I'm wondering what it's like back there.

Good luck retired! I think I'm going to be up there as well if I can sneak away.

I love stripping bugs on a float tube. Leeches to. I like green and red. Nothing like fishing from a tube! Good luck!

If you are looking down at bloody canyon and Laurel lake on Google Earth there is a ridge to the right and a lake on the other side of this ridge. Is anyone able to tell me what it is? My earth won't for some reason. There doesn't seem to be much of a trial either. At least not one I can see.

Woke up around 6am for work thursday, was off by 5pm, pack and waited for my buddy to be off. Left socal just after midnight and headed straight to convict lake camp. Was probably the third camp set up around 8am. Took a nap (28 hours later) around 10am until about 4pm. And then went glassing for some deer. Found some up in the mountains, put the stalk on them and got within about 100 yards. That was the most exciting thing this trip. .... I will do this every trip this year in preparation for pulling a tag in that zone this year or next hopefully with all the points I'm collecting from not getting drawn every year.

Friday night was incredibly cold. Everything was frozen and Seth has icicles in his beard.

Fished the opener until we couldn't see our poles any longer McGee/convict had 1 strike and that's about it..

Started early Sunday and fished until about 345p still nothing. I tried EVERYTHING.

I had a blast but still find myself a bit empty feeling after this trip.

I'm headed up next weekend for REDEMPTION.  :rotflmao:

Update: I have figured my situation out as best I could. I'm hoping for the best this weekend. Flying blind, but I'm sure It'll all work out.

I need to know if the gate to McGee is open or will be open for the opener? I've camped there for the opener (and closer) with no host just am open gate. I'm hoping that will be the case this year..

Hmm I'm thinking that must be the private RV camp at the bottom of the hill by the fish ponds?

Wait wait wait. What site are you getting that info from?? The reserve America site says it's closed until the 5th and all reservations have been cancelled and refunded.

All the camps say they open may 5th. That's a little late.

I just came back from the Sierra. The ENTIRE time I was out hiking I thought about all the men and women that are even further back into the mountains living out their dreams to complete the JMT/PCT. On one of my longer hikes this past weekend, I really wondered how they keep up their spirits and keep on pushing forward. These hikers never really left my thoughts this weekend. They really are lucky people!

If you can, which i doubt, you'll still need a fire permit. It's a quick test online. You'll need it for anything that has flame, even a stove I believe. I may be wrong as I have just started to look into this sort of thing as well. One of the lakes I was thinking about doing it out ended up being in an area that no fires are allowed. It is below the tree line.

Retired I'm still reading it every day as well! It's very amazing how many miles he's put behind him. I was really surprised how fast he traveled through the Mojave. I would think that part would kill me. His pictures are awesome! His constant talk about food makes me hungry!!
