North lake to South Lake with time for Humphreys Basin and MTR
« on: October 27, 2017, 10:57:14 PM »

Spent Sunday night just before Piute Pass and the next day hanging out in Humphrey's basin. Great weather


Sunset on Humphreys


Night spent at Piute Creek and the JMT


Dinner at MTR


Only place I took off my boots on entire trip as far as staying dry was concerned


Evolution Lake and beyond


Yours truly at the top of the pass


My last nights campsite


Looking back down from Bishop Pass at what I had hiked up


This sign meant the car was near. Great time going over lots of areas I had never seen.

One of the great classic trips of the Sierra, visiting some of the most beautiful of Sierra ranges.  I love fishing for goldens in the alpine lakes basins, Dusy, Evolution, and Humphreys.  Lot of traffic on this heavily traveled hike as it follows the JMT for almost half of the trip. Great trip report with beautiful photos.  Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful pictures, looks like a great trek. Your MTR meal looks a little higher class than the ones I've enjoyed at VVR. I have the loop on my bucket list.
