Hike Snowdon Ponds (Three Lakes Basin) to Crater Lake Trail

Monday, August 28, 8:00 am Register by Email

From Andrews Lake we take the usual trail to the back of Snowdon meadows, then we are mostly off-trail. Our route climbs a talus field to a tarn at 12,000 ft, then over a mild pass at 12,300 ft. to Three Lakes Basin. Then its a downhill bushwhack until we hit the Crater Lake Trail and return to our starting point. If conditions allow, we may stop to explore the mysterious *black hole* in one of the ponds.
Limit 12, Two dogs on approval. Carpool $6. RSVP Steve Schnarch, 970 749-4478 ssalivedgo@gmail.com This hike is limited to members and approved guests who are fully vaccinated and boosted.
