The last time I camped at Bowerman Lake was July 2003, the summer of the B&B fire.  That year a buddy and I scrambled to several of the beautiful off trail lakes in the area : Green Peak, Chiquito and Teto.  Green Peak was especially fun, we swam, caught our fill of brook trout and discovered a very old trappers cabin.  I decided to go back last week and have a look.  It is a very popular area, but I saw surprisingly few people.  Not much but snags and fireweed around those lakes now.  Some shoreline vegetation is coming back.  One of the places spared is my camp on Bowerman Lk.  I didn't go to Green Peak Lake this trip, but I did take some photos of the others.  The quality isn't great due to the point and shoot camera and smoke from the Waterfalls 2 fire north of Mt Jefferson.  Probably my last trip to Bowerman Lk.
Enjoy

The PCT is nearby, to the east.   If you could enlarge the topo map you would be able to see the PCT along the western flank of Three Fingered Jack.  A little further north, past Mt. Jefferson the PCT is closed due to the Waterfalls 2 fire, which is the cause of the haze in my pics.
