Photographer's Note

A view of South Lake seen from the trail that leads to Treasure lake. The trail is combined with the Bishop Pass trail until the first trail junction. Treasure Lakes trail goes to a beautiful, less visited, granite basin surrounded by talis slopes at the foot of Mount Thompson, Mount Goode and Hurd Peak. The trail from South Lake to Treasure Lake is 3 Miles straight up.
Trailhead Elevation (South Lake) — 9,800'
Finish Elevation (Main Treasure Lake) — 10,650'
Gain — 850' (283' per mile)

I got an early start because I prefer to hike when the weather is cool and comfortable. When I arrived at the lake, the Sierra Club was there on a three day backpacking trip. They hike up the trail to the lake free of gear that is delivered by the pack mules from Parchers Resort.
Please enjoy my photo.
