We had our first trip of the season to our summer cabin. The cabin is in the Eastern Sierra Nevada near several lakes. Big Virgina and Little Virgina are lakes you can drive to, for the rest you must hike. There is still to much snow for hiking but it is melting fast.
Big Virginia is at the trail head, 9600 feet.
Little Virgina is about 50 feet lower and the ice is almost gone. You see more snow because you are looking at a north facing slope, the shot of Big Virginia was a more south facing slope where the snow melts earlier.
