|Mike, Evolution Lake - Sierra Nevada 2004|
"11:35―Evolution Lake! Hard to believe I made it, after all those months staring at the topo map above my desk at work. Sit by lake for lunch, and then take a short walk to the lake outlet, Evolution Valley far below. Small trout visible―fish jumping in lake. Low battery indicator coming on intermittently on digital camera. Go ahead and change batteries.
Ech! Now I gotta hike all the way back! . . . Ech!
12:25 PM―Leave Evolution Lake.
1:20―Stream crossing. Not so bad this time.
7 hour dayhike.
