Hike up to Twin Lakes

I'm going to head up to Wright's Lake and hike to Twin Lakes. Round trip, it is approximately a 7 mile hike with 1000 feet of elevation gain on the way in. Depending on conditions, I may try to hike up on one of the peaks surrounding Twin Lakes to catch the view. Latest reports don't include much snow yet, so snowshoes and crampons shouldn't be necessary, but I'm going to throw mine in the car just in case. Treking poles are recommended and, as always, bring the 10 essentials.

Updated Ten Essential "Systems"

1. Navigation (map and compass)

2. Sun protection (sunglasses and sunscreen)

3. Insulation (extra clothing)

4. Illumination (headlamp/flashlight)

5. First-aid supplies

6. Fire (waterproof matches/lighter/candles)

7. Repair kit and tools

8. Nutrition (extra food)

9. Hydration (extra water)

10. Emergency shelter

If you end up carpooling from the Starbucks, please consider $3/hour for your driver's efforts.
