Last week I got to fly out and join MountainManMike and his friend Dan on a trip in Kings Canyon. Thank you guys it was great meeting and hiking with you.
I did a little pre-hike sightseeing in the parks before MMMike picked me up for the ride to the hike TH at Onion Valley. From there we hiked over to Rae Lakes with stops at Flower Lake, Charlotte Lake, Rae Lake, Kearsarge Lake, and Matlock Lake. Doing a out and back hike meant climbing both Kearsarge and Glen Passes twice so we got a pretty good work out.
On the drive back we took the scenic route with a stop to check out Mono Lake and great views driving thru Yosemite NP.
