East ridge from Branham Lakes  Sucess!

This is a fun and easy hike from Branham Lakes campground. Once you get up the trail (@ 1 mile) to the saddle, there are a lot of accessable peaks. In fact, looks like you could pretty much traverse the whole central spine of the range without too much difficulty. I decided to continue on to the north summit of Thompson Peak, which is only 4 feet lower and provides a different perspective. Also went up Leggat Mountain and found a really great high alpine fishing lake as well. The Branham Peaks look a little bit steeper and rockier, but I will definitely be back some day!
