First camp at Gaylord Lake, no fish, but always has waterfowl. The tepee structure is at Onion Meadows. There were 5 of them there, probably used by tribal members during hunting season. After a second night at Grave Lake, we headed to the cirque below Bernard Peak, which seems to be fishless. Heard a lone wolf in the night.
