Fourth Recess Lake - John Muir Wilderness


Sunset at Fourth Recess Lake

Sunset at Fourth Recess Lake, John Muir Wilderness. Fourth Recess Lake is located in the remote regions of the John Muir Wilderness, only reached via a long hike - the easiest approach being a hike over Mono Pass beginning from Little Lakes Valley. This photo was taken on a two night backpacking trip where I visited Pioneer Basin for a night, only to be driven to the less mosquito ridden Fourth Recess Lake for the second night. Both days threatened rain yet only gave a sprinkle here and there. The clouds did not relent all evening, obscuring much the the sunset and alpenglow as seen here.
