Any nice spots to share in Lyell Canyon? Never been to the area other than dayhikes. This will be a 3 day backpack in late July. I realize it will be very busy in this area during this time period, so I wanted to see if you all had some suggestions about spots off the beaten trail
Thanks in advance

I've never camped there, but it sure looked appealing.

Yeah, but well worth the effort.
