Hey, last minute thing... Someone posted this awesome trip report about pond skimming in snowmelt in desolation last year and it's all I've been looking forward to for 365 days. So, now that i finally get a couple of midweek days to go, I've noone else interested. So, my plan is heading to echo lake early-ish tuesday from Reno with pack, board, food, permit, and my dog, take the water taxi in... so, anyone interested in hiking/pond skimming next week? Im sure it'd be fun even with a toy sled. I'm stuck with those dates because the Mrs is heading out of town on business, so it works best.
there IS snow back there still, and here's a link to the TR from last year: http://www.telemarktalk.com/phpBB/viewt ... ca44643c10
