Hoover wilderness - Robinson lakes trailhead
August 13, 2013 08:14AM
Headed out from Robinson lakes trailhead in Mono Village for a 3 night backpacking trip in the Hoover wilderness (Wed-Sat). Camped at Barney, Crown, and Peeler lakes, respectively. On day 2, after hiking from Barney to Crown, my wife and I day hiked up to Mule Pass, and were treated to spectacular views with clouds building over the sierra crest. The following day, my wife and I split off from the group again to hike over Rock Island Pass, and through Kerrick Meadows in Yosemite. Peeler was a bit of a circus on Friday night, but we had a great, semi-secluded, spot on the west end of the lake. There was only one other group the other two nights sharing Barney and Crown with us. Beautiful place!

Fantastic pictures, bravo! Thanks for posting.
What lake is that in the first photo? Looks like a great spot.

Brings back great memories of Barney Lake with its great view of Crown Point and being another Sierra Lake with a sandy beach.

Here are some maps from our Hoover trip...doesn't add a whole lot since the route was on established trails and pretty self-explanatory, but thought I'd add it anyway (may even confuse things with the color overlays). It should be pretty easy to figure out where we camped (colors change)...and yes, we were over 100 ft from the water! Forgot to turn on the unit on the last day heading out from Peeler until we rounded the north end, so you might notice that the red track doesn't start until then.

Questions welcome. I recently picked up a Garmin etrex30 though in anticipation of doing some xc backpacking...still trying to figure out how to use the basecamp software. Not the most intuitive software ever. :-)
