Take highway 395 to Big Pine, CA.
Turn west on Glacier Lodge road.
drive 11 miles up the road until you see the west trailhead parking lot.
hopefully, there is an open spot to park, or else you have to park way back down the road.
park and then keep an open eye out for wildlife and then snap away.
A young Mule Deer buck pops its head up on my way up the North Fork trail to Second Lake. It had rained the night before so the ground was wet and muffled my footsteps on the trail. My muffled footsteps allowed me to get a nice closeup before this buck took off down the tail.
