Awoke to totally clear skies, sun hit us around 8am.  We decided to stay here another night and do a day hike up to the upper lake to see the pass we would have been coming over today.  We also wanted to climb “The Brain”… Ron’s name for a 2-lobe rock that looked pretty easy from the upper lakes.  Nice hike and nice views.  Lower part of Nine Lakes Basin is easy cross-country, upper part has more talus.  Still not too bad though.  Views over Kaweah Gap and down the Big Arroyo from “The Brain”.  Tomorrow we’re back on schedule—to Hamilton Lakes.
