Trip Report: Royal Basin

Pretty much perfect day in Royal Basin. I saw absolutely no one else from start to finish. It’s definitely getting towards autumn: there was frost on the ground above 5000 ft and the creek crossings were icy. However, the Upper Basin was warm and quiet. Amazing day.

The first ~6 miles are in the forest, close to Royal Creek.
Glacial gray.

Winter is coming: this pic was taken at 10:30 a.m. in the Lower Meadows. Sun just rising over the ridge.
