Our first excursion during our week in the Eastern Sierra was to McLeod Lake, which lies just 1 mile above Horseshoe Lake. The unusual elevation as well as the cool and very dry air were taking a toll and we didn’t venture much further than the lake itself.
The forest floor is very interesting here because it is mostly very light-weight and bright colored pumice, a rock of volcanic origin that even floats on water.
