Twin Lakes to Lodgepole
(7 miles, +300/-3,000 feet).
Today was an easy last day. We packed up our beautiful site at Twin Lakes and then headed into the woods for a three thousand foot descent back to civilization.
About halfway down we entered a burn zone from the KNP Complex fire (we joked that it was actually the “KFC” Complex, started by an errant fryer!).
The Park Service has done a lot of work through here cutting up trees that might pose a danger to hikers. Some of the labeling gets a bit extreme though:
And soon we were back down to Lodgepole and on the bus back to our car at Wolverton.
