I look at Mt Tyndall for a while. While it's a doable climb from this side, the slog is not appealing looking at all. Good thing we're planning on climbing from the other side in a few days.
At the upper lake. Sierra paradise.
Fishing was nice.
I could have stayed here a month.
Pavla enjoys the lake as well.
Take a few steps off trail and you get paradise to yourself.
Tyndall above us (14k)
We leave the upper lake to explore the rest of the basin.

Heading over a bump to the next set of lakes.
Heading down to a lake that is drying out.
We found some other lakes that would have made lovely camps. The whole basin was beautiful.
They don't call them glacial erratics for nothing.
Looking back on the Tyndall - Barnard ridge.
This rock is balanced on three smaller rocks.
Kind of reminded me of Guitar Lake
Goodbye to Tyndall, disappearing from view again. See you in a few days.
Following another creek back to camp.
X marks the spot?
We got quite a dinner show from our little campsite.
The small grove of gnarly trees near camp.
It had been warm under the exposed sun all day but the temp dropped quickly when the sun went down. Camp was at over 11.5k.
