The "unofficial" trail from the Triangle lake junction is in better shape than the "official" spur trail from the PCT.
Skeeters are out!
Pics are here.
Climbed Flagpole before continuing on to Echo Peak. Nice views from the top. Took the trail back to the Echo Lakes.
Hiked on my bachelor party with Eric, Scott, and Kevin. Should have brought more food instead of beer...
Snowshoed up across frozen Echo Lake from Echo Lake sno-park. Excellent views on a clear cold day.
Amazing weather, great views, and very few people made for a great dayhike from the Echo Lakes approach!
I hiked Echo Peak via the Tamarack Trail with Anita. After hanging around on the summit for a while in perfect weather, we descended Echo Peak's northeast-facing ridge to Upper Angora Lake. We purchased lemonades at Angora Lakes resort, talked with several friendly people, then made our way down the steep trail to Fallen Leaf Lake, lemonades in hand. I remember giggling with Anita, and heard her say, "I feel like I just walked out of a bar!" All in all a perfect, mellow, and very fun day.
I also climbed this peak from Upper Angora Lake in June of 2000, solo.
Another easy Tahoe peak with an enjoyable traverse and great views. Continued on to Flagpole.
This was just a nice way to spent the day.
It was a long time ago...but I remember lot's of snow!!
This was one of my grandfathers favourite hikes, and we used to do it all the time when I was young. Usually we'd just head straight uphill from our cabin by the Echo Lakes Channel. Sometimes we'd take other approaches too though. Good times!
Snowshoed up this sucker in January 2003. The views of the Crystal Range were awesome.
Followed the ridge around Flagpole, this, Ralston, and a couple of other bumps whose names I forget. Mellow and surprisingly enjoyable.
We climbed this out of Echo Lakes via Flagpole Peak. After Echo Peak we continued on to Angora Peak and Kieth's Dome. Cloudy with occasional sun, windy, not too cold. Snow higher up was ancle-deep.
