I wanted to show you all a map of the general area we hiked, though each hike has a more detailed map, just to give you an idea of the size and scope of the area. If the pictures looked expansive, the map should really drive that point home.
I’ve annotated the map with a few of the lakes we’ve written about. Desolation Wilderness is the name of the general area in the Eldorado National Forest that we hiked and here are the lakes whose names aren’t labeled:
- Floating Island Lake
- Cathedral Lake
- Lily Lake
- Snow Lake
- Granite Lake
It’s funny to think that we’ve seen so many of the lakes from the summit of Mt. Tallac, like Susie, Lake Ahola, and Cascade, but I’ve never seen them up close.
