Ce que vous allez faire
Be prepared to immerse yourself in some of the most spectacular scenery on earth ... and ... and most likely (unless the weather is extraordinarily uncooperative) have the opportunity to go inside a 160 foot long snow cave which glows green to blue inside--bring the camera. We will be hiking a 9 mile loop dotted with multiple high alpine lakes and cascading streams. It's an easy to moderate hike with about a 600 foot elevation gain along the way, and should take between 4-5.5 hours. You don't have to be in ironman shape but professional couch potatoes should probably wait and watch your videos. It's always possible to see deer and other wildlife such as marmots, bald eagles and osprey along the way. The co-guide and brains of the operation is my dog 'Cheyenne' whom you see in the photos. I can give photo advise if anyone should want it and/or identify most of the plants and critters we'll see along the way. It will be an incredible trek through a region typical tourists don't know about.
I live and have hiked throughout the Sierras discovering spectacular spots off the main thoroughfare. And ... if I must say I have the worlds best dog ... Cheyenne is the brains of the operation. She does admit that my passion for the area as well as extensive knowledge of the flora and fauna is why she keeps me around-- well, that and the fact that I carry 'The Treats'.
Ce qui est inclus
Potato chips/Kind Bar/H2O You'll follow me the 1 hour to the trailhead. I do have room for 4 more in my car as well.
We'll begin our hike high up, already at the alpine level. After passing a few stunning lakes--watch for bald eagles and osprey as I see them most trips--we get to the snow cave--I'm so excited. Now don't shoot me if in the unlikely event there's been an elephant stampede over it and it has collapsed--doubtful, but one never knows. After dragging everyone--namely me, away from the cave we continue our loop soaking in the incredible scenery.

Plus de conseils
Be in fair shape we're not going to rush and there's not a lot of uphill--about 300 ft, but this still is a long hike. Best to acclimate at least one day before the hike as it starts at 10,128 ft.
