Sphinx Lakes in Kings Canyon Park

I normally hike on trails, but this year start to include some XC sections, which is totally different experience. Trail starts from Road Ends in Kings Canyon, go to Bubbs Creek where we went last year, then continue toward Avalanche Pass, but you have to leave trail before pass and go XC. Detailed description available here
This year snow melted early, but just few days before Memorial Day weekend storm pass over Sierra and left few inches of fresh snow.
 Crossing creek with iced rocks and trees:
 That's where I made it. Lakes starts on the left side of this picture:
I did not have enough time (yes, 11 hours was not enough). I think its better to camp at Bubbs creak and start from there.
