Hi Kimi,

Do you have the appropriate topo map(s) for the area?  Be sure to obtain and bring it/them along.  You can always go to Caltopo.com, zoom into the SGW zone until you locate Dry Lake.  On the left sidebar, “Preset Layers,” click on ‘Forest Service.’  This will fill in numerous details onto the map–such as the approx location of Lodgepole Springs (+/- 1/4m east of Dry Lake, up the use trail to the Lodgepole camp area).  Using the dropdown “Measure” tools tab at the top of the map image you can easily figure out distances, specific GPS location numbers etc.  Similarly, printing out the map(s) to paper is easy-peasy.  Like Mike said though–melt-water is practically everywhere right now and you can easily load up en route at the always-reliable, South Fork or Dry Lake creek crossings before heading up to/down from Dry Lake.  Please let us all know next week how your adventure went!  Thx, Steve B
