Trinity Wilderness Backpacking Part 3 of 3

Trinity Backpacking Trip Part 3 of 3!

These photos start with the morning of day 3 and end with the end of our trip, day 4.

Breakfast: Sweet potato cinnamon oatmeal with dried apples, raisins and granola topping.

The day started with a short hike from our campsite (without our packs). Adam went all the way to the top of Siligo Peak. He took this picture looking down on Deer Lake and the trail we took to get to Summit Lake (in the foreground). To continue on our trip, we'll go back down that trail across the snow, and up the switchbacks in the granite on the far side of the bowl and over the other pass. 

Siligo Meadows after hiking over pass at Deer Lake. We are about to hike over Little Stonewall Pass.

Echo lake is back in there! We didn't see any good campsites.

Continued hiking down below Echo Lake and found a few great campsites. This was the best one. Great views for 360 degrees!

Camping in a wet meadowy area, our actual campsite was very dry. We expected mosquitos but had almost none.

Dinner night three: Potatoes with ground turkey and veggies. Delish!

The camp.

Great views from camp! That is Van Matre Meadows.

Spencer was very photogenic that evening.

Morning of the last day!! Up and over (big) Stonewall Pass!

At the top of the pass! Looking down. This day we dropped down ~5100 feet! 

Looking back over the pass from where we came.

On the way down we saw lots of flowers, especially when we got lower. 

Blooming azaleas!

Aaaand...back to the van. Check out the next post about the last day of our vacation, 
when we hiked out to Canyon Creek area!
