Successful Golden Trout Wilderness Trip Re-Routed to Ansel Adams Wilderness

After some last minute excitement caused by the Cabin Fire, we had to move our location the day before the trip! Fortunately all volunteers were able to make the switch to Cora Lakes in the Ansel Adams Wilderness in the Sierra National Forest. It was a beautiful location with High Sierra lakes, creeks, mountains, meadows and forest. We accomplished a great variety of work safely and enjoyed ourselves thoroughly. Thank you to all who participated and made this trip a splendid success despite the setbacks. Happy trails!
