From the road, this is a 1200' climb in ~ 2.2 miles (average 10% grade - thats not the grade going straight up the mountain!) The weather started decent, at the top, well...
A rather easier trip to Burnside lake - but there were too many trees to see the lake. Sunny skies and good view though.
Sierra Crest Trail - Carson Pass to Meiss Lake
The Sierra Crest Trail intersects HWY 88 just west of Carson Pass. While the ranger said the trail was blazed (by himself, in 1802), we, nor the other skiers, not the snowshoers, nor... could find any blazes. That resulted in a few times of backtracking, at least the maps were accurate!
