    Another reason is the good brook trout fishing there. 🙂 If you have time, and are looking for a tasty dinner (or breakfast, depending on when you are there), take some time to do a little fishing and you will most likely hook a brookie or two (or three).

    Sallie Keyes is one of my favorite places in the Sierra too. I don’t fish either but I saw a guy walking down the trail between the two lakes with to enormous Brown Trout on a skewer. I’ve always thought about camping there but it has never worked out since it’s so close to MTR.

    I have enjoyed nice long lunch breaks there though. Thanks for the article!

    My husband and I are going to hike the John Muir trail the summer of 2017. Although that is a ways off, I am already well into our plan. Marie Lake and breakfast at the Sallie keyes Lakes is part of our itinerary. Resources like your e-book and Tuesday articles make research so much easier! I have always felt that the planning, if done thoroughly, is like my first aid kit – a necessity for safety. The more I know about the trail before I begin, the less likely I am to make judgement errors out of ignorance. The planning is half the fun…well, maybe not half!
