Sorry about the dinner someday day when I see you I owe you a dinner
when your coming from the trail head and your at the intersection where on your left you see a forest service maintenance shed with a small stream crossing take the trail to the right follow the edge along the trees which is the north side of the meadow. If your coming from 4th or 5th lake head north east until you come to those same trees and head north. you might see a 15ft tall snow marker head north from there.
Wow!! I never went around the Lake from the East side(who does that)
The chute is a lot of fun depending on what your carrying it takes me anywhere from 50min. to 1hr and 15min depending who I'm with.
BTW: what does 541 mean are there that many in CA?
this is the intersection see the green rectangle patch(at the top of the trees) at 1 o clock that's the pond and brush below 6th lake
