East Crater / Jcn and Bear Lakes

Post by drm » August 6th, 2018, 6:54 pm

I have wanted to see the East Crater trail and Junction Lake to see what damage there was from the fire last year. Sunday was the day and I decided not to spend the night given the reputation for mosquitoes, but there were very few. I had lunch next to Jcn Lake with no DEET and got maybe two bites. And no fire damage there either, or going south a ways on the PCT. All of the burn appears to be on the east side of East Crater.

Thanks for the report. I've been wondering about the damage since we were in Indian Heaven at the time the fire broke out.
