The summer is here and it is time to go to the mountains. Originally I wanted to go summit Mt Tallac. It should have very nice views of the blue Lake Tahoe. However, I’ve missed the permits for that area. Desolation Wilderness, it appears, is a very popular place (for a good reason). Thus the forest service limits the number of people who can go to particular places. But I found a different, just as good, place to camp that required a fairly short car shuttle.
- Leave Friday, June 22nd, evening and stay at William Kent campground.
- On Saturday morning do the car shuttle and start hiking from the Meeks creek trailhead. Stay for the night at the Rubicon Lake.
- On Sunday finish the hike.
