Photo Album

The snow has finally cleared out, mostly, and the wildflowers are great. The photos in the full mid-day sun don’t do them justice, though. This hike route starts at the PCT trailhead at Donner Summit on I-80, follows the PCT under the freeway, then branches toward Summit Lake (via the Donner Lake Rim Trail for that leg) and the overlook 1200 feet above Frog Lake.
