Lake Fontanillis II

Located in Desolation Wilderness, west of Emerald Bay, CA.

Lake Fontanillis is a high elevation lake just above the 3 Velma lakes. I am standing in what should be the outlet and there is a beaver damn just ahead of me. This lake is a great camping spot and not too strenuous of a hike to get to. Being made mostly of granite, I would think this lake would be a great spot for swimming as well, but I haven't tried it yet - always too cold when I'm there. The weather in this photo was cool and crisp with a strong breeze with just a bit of warmth in the evening sun.
