Sierra Nevada - Yosemite National Park - Hoover Wilderness
Twin Lakes Circuit

During August 22-29, 1965 myself, Bill Paine, Noel Parr, Chris Mayer, Bob Johnson and Gerry Hester did a 65 mile round trip Deck Trek from Twin Lakes near Bridgeport, California. Beautiful weather. Mosquitoes relatively heavy.

First day from Twin Lakes up new Crown Lake trail to Peeler Lake fisherman's trail, then to Peeler Lake.

Monday Peeler Lake down Kerrick Canyon to 8500' camp at Bear Valley Junction.

Tuesday to Tilden Lake - beautiful.

Wednesday to Dorothy Lake.

Thursday climbed Forsyth Peak in a.m. (Deck, Parr, Johnson) then on to Piute Meadow.

Friday to South Fork Buckeye Creek at trail junction for Twin Lakes.

Saturday to Twin Lakes via an old trail directly to Barney Lake which has now been abandoned. We then drove to Bodie ghost town for sightseeing. Steaks in Bishop. Camped at Bishop. Sunday home early afternoon. Trip good but a little long.
