SIERRA CLUB PRESENTS BACKPACKING IN THE JOHN MUIR WILDERNESS

At our April 17 meeting, join a Sierra Club Big Bear backpacking group via a video presentation on a journey in July 2013 into the remote Humphreys Basin in the John Muir Wilderness. Follow along as they struggle up the scenic North Fork of Bishop Creek to reach 11,423' Piute Pass. See as they saw the alpine ponds, streams, wildflowers and water falls along this section of the trip. Once arriving at Piute Pass you will be treated to grand views of one of the Sierra's finest alpine basins. This huge lake filled lightly timbered area has spectacular views of the Glacier Divide. Follow along on day hikes to Desolation Lake and along Piute Creek into Piute Canyon. Enjoy the vivid wildflower displays along the trails to these destinations. Spend an evening watching the sun set at the group's base camp at the Golden Trout Lake.
