Volcano Lake

To continue our yearly tradition of going backpacking on Father’s Day, we headed up to the Sierra Buttes. Even though we technically didn’t “backpack” this year and actually stayed in a campground, we did do a day hike up to Volcano Lake. For a relatively short hike, it sure beats all the crowds down at Sardine Lakes and Sand Pond. The water was clear and cold, but so refreshing. It was also a bit windier than I was hoping for, which caused the water to really blur during this long exposure (almost making it look like I didn’t focus properly).
