Garnet lake is one of the many lakes on the JMT.  This lake is between Ruby lake and Shadow lake.  Once you come over either ridge you drop down into this beautiful lake in the Sierra Mountains.  Backpacking this trail the infamous John Muhur Trail is like nothing else.

The one morning I woke up here I went straight to the lake to fish.  You can see the trout in the lake and surfacing for flies.  I was able to land one little 1-2lbs trout at first light.
