Sierra High Route, Sierra Nevada, California 2012

In the summer of 2012, my brother and I hiked the length of California’s High Sierra, from Mineral King to Twin Lakes. About one half of the 300 miles was off trail — cross country travel through alpine terrain. We followed Steve Roper’s “Sierra High Route” most of the way, with some additions and changes, including an extra 60 mile stretch from Mineral King to Kings Canyon.
