We had to go through Tahoe since the passes were closed, but at least that gave us the opportunity to stop along the pretty walker river.

Looking back up Lyell Canyon once the switchbacks start. I love the snaking river
After lunch we head up the canyon some more. This is the view back down the canyon much of the way.

Rapids at the lunch stop
At my favorite lunch stop, about five miles up the canyon. The river flows over smooth granite and is a wonderful place to soak the feet!
