John Muir Trail: The most beautiful lakes

We camped at Lake Virginia on Day 22.

We were surprised by the sheer number of lakes, ponds and watering holes scattered along the John Muir Trail. Most were so crystal clear that we could count the fish swimming about. Our group was lucky enough to camp at a few of them and Reg and I enjoyed lunch along the shore of others. In between, I snapped photos left and right, hoping I’d be able to remember which was which.

At Purple Lake, we paused and posed for a photo.

    Such beautiful lakes. Charlotte Lake holds a special place in my heart as it’s where my son and 3 other guys brought in our resupply. The snickers bars were great but the fresh fruit and vegetables topped the list. You guys look great. Happy trails
