Mostly a hike through the woods today.  We were surprised to find no water flowing in the outlet of Twin Lakes, although there was water in the first branch of Clover Creek that we crossed.  Several others were camped at Twin Lakes, this is a popular spot being so close to the trailhead.

Journal Entry:  First day doing loop with Twin Lakes & Cloud Canyon out of Lodgepole in Sequoia NP.  Drove down yesterday and parked car at Crescent Meadow, took shuttle bus back to Lodgepole.  Today we hiked in 7 miles or so to Twin Lakes at 9400 ft.  Clouds building most of the day but clearing up now around 4pm.  Not too much smoke haze today, yesterday haze was worse when we climbed Moro Rock.  Tomorrow we head over Silliman Pass.
