Lyell Canyon Trip Report
June 19, 2012 09:00PM
Spent a lovely couple of days in Lyell canyon this past weekend. It's still early spring and the flowers are just starting to bloom up there. The fishing was ok for catch/release, all the 5 inch brookies you can handle! The trail was slightly muddy in certain areas but overall it's pretty dried out. The creek crossings are all very easy at this point as well. And now some pics:

Camped about 1.5 miles from the base of Donahue pass at the end of the canyon. The ranger said the pass is still covered in snow but navigable.

Any word on the mosquitoes? How bad were they?

They are out but not horrible yet. I packed a head net but never really needed it. Was able to get away with natural bug juice, didn't need to break out the deet.

Nice that you escaped from serious mosquito wrath. I really love that last pic with the snow in the pass. Thanks for taking the time to share the pics!
