We backpacked into Venable Lakes on the July 18th weekend. It was a great trip with perfect weather and excellent fishing.
Jeff and I went for a hike over to the Phantom Terrace later in the day. We didn’t appreciate the cliff along the trail.
Then we hiked over to Venable Pass, and Jeff continued to hike up a nearby peak.
The fishing was really good, too.
The columbines were in full bloom as well . . .
I always call this dead tree The Tree of the King, because it reminds me of the one in the movie Lord of the Rings.
Venable Lakes is one of our favorites.
