So my buddy Adam who lives in Jackson(where I stayed while in town and had the use of his truck<thanks adam>), was able to get off of work on Thursday and Friday so we headed out together for a 4 day trip. We started from the Green River Lakes TH and headed up river.
In the meadow between lower and upper Green River lakes. Squaretop Mt and the bottle in the distance.
Headed up along the upper lake. The lower lake is clear and greenish blue, while the upper lake below is green and milky (glacial flour/silt). I guess most of it settles out before making it to the lower lake.
We set up camp on Kenny Lake on the far side of the basin. We begin to relax and unwind but the skies had been looking threatning for a while and we were soon forced into the tents when a storm blew in not long after the picture below. Lots of rain and severval very close ground shaking lightning bolts begin to pop the peaks around us. We were forced to stay in the tent for an hour or so then the skies tried to clear and we made dinner.
We pushed out fast and I took no more pictures along the way. He had to get to work back in Jackson the next day so we headed back down and ate some good homemade lasagne. I stayed in Jackson that night and headed out the next day back to the Winds and the Elkhart Park TH. Part 3 coming soon.
