Hiking to Lake Blanche

Lake Blanche

 Elevation: 8920  Feature: Lake
Notes: If you make it to this lake, you should go to the 2 sister lakes, all within a half mile. The view of Sundial Peak from here is one that is photographed often. I had all 3 lakes to myself for about an hour when I went there, it was hard to leave. Painter/authur Alfred Lambourne left his family and lived in the Lake Blanche area for 5 months in the 1880s.
