Camp was fun, not too hot, with cool nights, tasty food, and excellent companionship! And the hiking was good too! The two most popular hikes were Stuart Fork, followed by Granite Lake. Stuart Fork was a pleasant walk along a burbling creek through the woods with a few glimpses of granite peaks. Granite Lake was a steady, 2,100' gain through various eco-systems - forest, a huge bog filled with darlington plants, meadows with a wide variety of flowers, culminating in a swimmable lake in a cirque. At less than 5 miles RT hiking, Boulder Lake and Little Boulder Lake were very accessible, beautiful, and many enjoyed swimming in the smaller lake. The Hodges Cabin hike was also mostly along a creek, culminating in a 1900's era homestead, complete with various farm implements and a barn. Hidden Lake was a long drive, but only 2 miles RT and also in a rugged cirque. Other destinations included Tangle Blue Lakes, Stoddard Lake, Trail Gulch lakes, Big Bear Lake, and Dorlesca Mine. Thanks very much to all the leaders, and particularly the drivers, many of whom drove on dusty, pot holed roads most days.
