Dave and I headed up to Desolation Wilderness this Memorial Day weekend with the standard group. As usual, a good time was had by all. Saturday we started at the Bay View Trailhead and hiked over Maggie’s Peak to the Velma Lakes region. After some confusion, we all regrouped and set up our campsites at Upper and Middle Velma lakes. On Sunday we dayhiked Phipps Peak, then all came together at the same site at Upper Velma. The tequila and wine came out and we had a great time sharing stories and backpacking plans until the booze ran out. Can’t wait for the next one!
