    Quick Lake Blanche camping Q?

    It's probably been a decade since I've been up to the Sister lakes in BCC. I'd like to run up soon for an overnighter. I remember it's pretty rocky. Can I find some soft ground to stake a shelter or do I need to carry a heavier free standing tent? Thanks!

    You are right, it is quite rocky in a lot of areas up there. I like the area just west of the 3 lakes, kind of near the upper small pond. Or on the east side of all 3 lakes, there are some flat spots too.

    Or on the edge of the most western lake, you could camp right on top of one of the granite slabs. Bring a comfy pad and you’ll be fine.

    That's the exact area I had in mind, lake Lillian, the furthest away as to avoid the day hiking masses in the morning. Thanks!

    I'd rather bring a cute blonde to sleep on... but to each his own...
