Start/End: Dicks Pass/Echo Lakes
Highlights: Great scenery
A gorgeous and hot fall day. Had to nap in the shade during the heat of the day. I lay out on my thermarest on the granite bank of Lake Aloha, whose level was down quite significantly. By nightfall I was passing Echo Lakes and made camp on a rise high above the upper end of Lower Echo, stretched between 2 mature junipers. I woke late, to a beautiful sight.
