Rock dike intrusion pattern. John Muir Wilderness, Sierra Nevada, California.
A white dike intrudes into blue-gray rock forming an abstract tree shape with yellow lichen suggesting leaves. My favorite hike in the Bishop Creek watershed goes from South Lake to Long Lake and Saddlerock Lake, looping back via a steeper, poorly marked route to Ruwau Lake, Chocolate Lakes, and Bull Lake, in John Muir Wilderness, Inyo National Forest, Sierra Nevada, California, USA. The rewarding semi-loop is 9 miles with 2220 feet cumulative gain. An easier walk is 7.2 miles round trip with 1500 feet gain to Saddlerock Lake, out and back via beautiful Long Lake.Add to Cart Add to Lightbox Download
