I'd spent the night camped at Red Lake on the east side of Carson Pass, off SR88. I had used this same site a month earlier with Jackie, finding it a fine, high-altitude spot to avoid the summer heat in the valleys below. And like that first time, there wasn't another soul around. I was up early to drive west over Carson Pass and down to the Bear River Reservoir for a handful of easy summits before driving home. I had tried to access this area a few years earlier, but found the road over the dam closed due to maintenance on the dam itself. Today I would have no such issues. There is a whole network of Forest roads in the area that were fun to explore. They are very popular with quite a few campgrounds and tons of folks camping all over the place back there.
