  12. 12. Marcella Lake Marcella Lake is off the beaten path adjacent to a large granite shelf and lush meadow that flows into the lake. It is a eerie place with large tree trunks and numerous fallen trees partially submerged in the lake and around the shoreline. When the wind blows through the shattered trees, it makes a haunting sound that reminds me of the war cry of Indian braves. At dawn and dusk, the mosquitos blow in from the meadow. Before you know it the lake is filled with rings as fish strike the mosquitos. It is a fly fisherman’s dream. There are few places like it. At night, sit back and enjoy the sundown with your friends and loved one.

  15. 15. I am forever grateful to the family and friends who journeyed with me to the High Sierras over these 60 years. I love and cherish the memories we made. A family surviving in nature with their belongings on their back is a freedom never forgotten.
