Summary Pictures in the High Sierra

IMG_5650

I will provide more details, but the basics are:

  • Grey, Benny & Teddy took a hike in the Sierra Nevada of California
  • We stayed the first night at Mono Hot Springs – a low-key spot 2h east of Fresno
  • We started from Lake Thomas Edison, Camp Vermillion, 30mins further up the rustic road from Mono Hot Springs
  • The area is part of the John Muir Wilderness, between Yosemite N.P. and Sequoia N.P.
  • The trail was along Lake Edison and then toward Goodale Pass, but up to Graveyard Lakes
  • Then over, off-trail, toward Peter Pande Lake, and onto the PCT / JMT toward Indian Head Lake and Squaw Lake to Warrior Lake and Silver Lake Pass
  • From Silver Lake along PCT, the Vermillion Cliffs and back along the Vermillion Trail to Lake Edison and the namesake trailhead
  • It was great
