trumbill lake Emigrant Wilderness Map bluelake
A grouping of small lakes on the Eastern slopes of the Sierra Nevada mountains near Bridgeport, California. Camping & fishing is the main attraction here. Awesome back country access for the backpackers who love hiking the Hoover Mountain Wilderness. Aspen trees turn golden colors as freezing temps lower in Autumn, and can be breathtaking in October. Sometimes the window of opportunity is very short, as the first snow of the season usually falls at the same time of year.
