      Frogs

      This past July, while descending from Silver Pass, I was serenaded by a chorus
      of frogs as I passed an unnamed lake just north east of Silver Pass Lake at
      about 10, 400 feet. There must have hundreds of them.  The trail was too far
      from the lake for me to see the frogs, but they were very loud.  Can I safely
      assume that these were the Yellow Legged Frogs?  Are there other kinds of frogs
      up there?

      in 89 I stopped next to a pond near Virginia Lake and there were thousands of
      tadpoles in it. There was barely enough room for them, and nothing else.

      As I understand it (per Roland), MYF make an inaudible "call", that can only be heard by holding a device to the water (or by other MY frogs). You were probably hearing Pacific? Tree Frogs. The third common "frog" is the Yosemite Toad.
