Yes, I got carried away at Bench Lake, stayed in five minutes, and shivered violently afterwards for almost two hours. Perhaps I even learned a lesson. But we visited Emigrant August 16-19 this year and man it was hotter than hell. We estimated that most of the lakes were around 76F and even my wimpie friends could not wait to jump in with me every time we hit a new lake.
Anyhow your report is wonderful and makes me all the more certain that an extensive longer Emigrant trip is on the books for next year. I love the dogs-in-silhouette shot.
