From the morning of Sunday, Oct 13, 2019. Portage into Tin Can Mike I think. Really nice big fluffy flakes. Beautiful start to our trip.

Where were you parked at because mine was the only car in the Poplar parking lot? A two day trip loop seems kind of quick as tough as the snow made the portages.



I might have stayed later if I didn't have to pick up camp but I wasn't going to pack up everything that wet and then set up camp in that much snow knowing that I had to be out on Monday anyway. Saturday was actually the best day of the 6 I was out there because the wind wasn't blowing 20 mph."



Yah, you commented on the trip report too, but, yes, we came in Bower Trout and out Ram (so about a 30 mile loop.) I don't know about you, but the portages definitely took longer in the snow. Also, there's something weird about knowing you can't get gear dry. With all that snow and cold, if gear was wet it was going to stay wet. Part of the changing seasons I guess. Glad we were prepared for it.

That bottom one is so beautiful it makes me ache. Is that sumac in the foreground?

Some wind chill, a little snow on ground (more snow and sleet to come), and below zero night time temps. Not seeing any other paddlers ???

Photos probably taken in Winter of 1983.
6 day, 70 miler.

missmolly, thanks. It is indeed sumac in the foreground. When I got to the park I decide to wait until the snow stopped to set up camp so i just went for a hike. It was a cold grey start to the trip but the next few days were beautiful.

The wife and I did a day hike on the Kek Trail, Ely side, and it snowed the majority of the time. None of it stuck around though.

Just a little snow on the trees where I was.
Looks sort of like a Bob Ross painting.
Happy little trees.

There was a little color in the willows and grass surrounding Guitar Lake in Sequoia National Park Yesterday. A little bit of last years snow was still left in the shadows. Taken from the John Muir Trail at 14,000 feet.
There is very little traditional fall color here so I appreciate the beautiful photos posted here.

Here were the fall colors on Omega Lake yesterday when I was there for a 7 day solo that ended a couple days early. Packed out 12 miles in 8 hours and the snow was 12-18 inches. It was a wonder I didn't roll an ankle or break a leg because you didn't know where you were stepping with the snow. Mine were the only tracks I saw back in there on the portages until I got to the Poplar Lake portage.
