June 24, 2014: Carson Pass & Round Top, California

I hiked from Carson Pass (8600') to Frog Lake on the PCT, then south to Winnemucca Lake, up to the summit of Round Top (10381'), down to Round Top Lake, back to Winnemucca Lake, then northwest to Woods Lake. From there I walked out to Highway 88 and hitchhiked about 1 mile back to the trailhead. About 11 miles altogether (map).
