pear lake and the sierras

This week it was my pleasure to hike out of Sequoia National Park to Pear Lake with Robby and Davey. Our route was listed by Backpacker Magazine as one of the best trips in the West, and it did not disappoint at any point. We headed up to Pear on the first day, day hiked to Moose Lake and an unnamed peak on the second day, and headed back out on the third day. The weather was perfect and the sights were spectacular.

Please comment, share, view, critique, ask questions, anything and as always, enjoy!
