It’s summer. Time for backpacking the high country, wherever that is for you. For me, that almost always means the mighty high Sierra that runs along the eastern border of California. For those who’ve never been, it’s so hard to describe the beauty, ruggedness and majesty that lives in those mountains. Here, we’re approaching the Rae Lakes basin on the eastern side of Kings Canyon National Park, looking down from the almost 12,000 foot Glenn Pass. An amazing stretch of country and the Rae Lakes area is one great place to make camp and explore.
