Ascent Trip Report

Just followed a semi-use trail around May Lake.... wanted to explore the high sierra area a little bit more and look for USGS markers on Nate's birthday. My mistake was not asking the people who ran the camp WHERE the USGS marker was. Instead, I just walked around the lake. Some boulder scrambling, and on the back half there wasn't a well defined trail. But just followed the lakeshore in the shadow of Mt. Hoffman. About an hour for the 2.5 mile loop. Once I finished, I asked the camp owners where I could find a USGS marker - they knew of one atop Mt. Hoffman. But I was pretty much out of daylight. But... never say never.
