day hike - desolation lake from mill d north th - June 29, 2022

This will be a less steep and slower paced hike than Jim K's Kessler Peak hike today, since I'm in training for a long backpacking trip and will be carrying a heavy backpack. This is a nice 8 mile out and back with some stretches of shade. This trail is popular with both hikers and mountain bikers, so we'll get an early start and hope to beat the crowds.
