 Lower Blue Lake Fishing Trip, 9/2/12

9/3/12; Attempted to go hiking to Fallen Leaf Lake.  I used some GPS coordinates that I got off the web, which was a bad idea.  It took us near the North end of the lake, so we tried getting to the lake from there, but managed only to get to part by Taylor Creek and the floating logs further along the trail.  We didn't want to hike any further, so we head back to the car and tried driving along the Eastern side to see if we could get a view, but had no such luck as the road was narrow and lakeside residential.
