Susie, I enjoy your blog! Marion

Great photos - and great walk too. 32 miles in four days sounds strenuous.
Thanks for visiting my blog.

We had no problem getting our permit. We stopped in at the Forest Service office in Tahoe City on Friday morning and just picked one up. No reservation. I wasn't aware of the need for a reservation but I think hiking in late September made things a lot less crowded than usual. The weather was perfect and NO mosquitoes! We were told that if you pick up the permit the day of the hike your first night is supposed to be in the wilderness area and ours (at Richardson Lake) was not. The lady at the desk worked around the problem for us.
I hope you get to do it soon.


Congratulations on completing the Desolation section of the Tahoe Rim Trail and on completing the entire TRT! WOW!
We still have a couple of sections to complete on the TRT but am curious to know if it was difficult to get an overnight permit for Desolation Wilderness Area? How far in advance did you need to request the permit?

Thanks for sharing your experience.
