Miess Meadow from Carson Pass

It's an easy hike with lots to see.

By: Ed Morris + Save to a List

Last fall I went into Meiss Meadow. It was the second time I had been there in 28 years. The first time was in 1989 working on the creek bank. 

The two structures are still there, intact as they were back then. It's an easy hike. Easy enough for some one with titanium in his spine. 

It's rather dry going up but once you begin to work your way down into the bowl there is more than enough run off for your canteen. Mountain water is the sweetest.
