Johnston Lake

Johnston Lake - Sierra Nevada  2014

False Hellebore Leaf - Sierra Nevada  2014

In the olden days (i.e., the 60's and 70's) we'd be able to dayhike up to Minaret Lake and back in a day. The first milestone on the way was Johnston Lake, shallow and reed-filled. However, for this hike Mike was much less ambitious, studying the topo map and plotting out a gradual ascent utilizing two campsites.

Anyway, here he was at Johnston Lake with his Olympus E-PL5 (with a 12-50mm zoom lens) slung around his neck. Wow!  He was pleased to find that he was able to operate the camera in spite of the altitude, taking a two-photo merge of the lake and a closeup of a late season false hellebore leaf.
