McGee Lakes, King's Canyon NPI've posted before on the trip over Lamarck Col and into the Evolution Valley, so I'm going to just focus on the off-trail part of last summer's 7-day Sierra trip. Our 3rd day we dropped from the Darwin Bench to the John Muir Trail, followed it a mile, and headed cross-country up to the McGee Lakes.

Crossing Evolution Creek. Refreshingly cool water.
|That's me. My spouse took this photo.|
The stream coming down through this meadow provided a perfect lunch stop. Eldest Son lost no time getting his feet wet.
|If my memory serves, this would be McGee Creek, though it wanders a bit from the lakes to the valley floor.|
|The spouse, either surveying the landscape or waiting with some impatience for his wife.|
|Is it still a selfie if it's a photo of your feet?|
