Parker Lake

 

Parker LakeWe hiked from the high desert with its low-growing plants into the alpine environment of the eastern Sierra Nevadas in California.  Scrub gave way to aspens and pine, and soon we came upon the goal of this hike:  a pristine, crystalline lake.  If you look closely to the mountain in the “V” you will see the mountain stream and waterfalls which feed into Parker Lake.  A two-mile hike at a high altitude (9000 ft?) was worth it all!  Click to enlarge!
