Lost Lakes and The Nipple, July 13, 2017 (Part III of the Three Consecutive Days at The Nipple Trilogy)

Completing the three consecutive days skiing trilogy involved adding another skier, Spence, as well as another relatively nearby location, Lost Lakes.

While this would offer a long run, we decided to explore further and save this for a run along the hike back.

Along the way we had a panoramic view of Lower and Upper Blue Lakes as seen from the Pacific Crest Trail.

Hiking further out would lead us to Lost Lakes.

It was a lot of fun completing the Three Consecutive Days at The Nipple Trilogy. There was smooth corn snow along with a great variety of ski runs to enjoy.
