On the edge of Deadfall Lake

Our fearless leader shows us the way south on the PCT!
In mid July, we ventured out in to a wild stretch of mountains east of the Trinity Alps and west of Mt. Shasta.  After a night of car camping near Scott Mountain, we began a backpacking trip on the PCT near the headwaters of Trinity River.  Our destination was a collection of beautiful mountain lakes called Deadfall Lakes, three miles in.  We spent a wonderful couple of days at the lake with a star-filled night in between.  It was a classic mid-summer trip with a warm sun and cool water for swimming.
