At Reds Meadow we had dinner and breakfast as well as a shower and then set up for the day. Mainly a day of ascent – but passing many beautiful lakes. Gladys, Rosalie and Shadow Lakes all pristine. Then we crossed over to Garnet Lake and finally Thousand Island Lake. As its name suggests the lake is dotted with many small islands providing a unique appearance. This provided the perfect backdrop with Mount Ritter and Banner in the background.
