Enjoy one of the greatest backpacking trips in the Eastern Sierras. After spending a night acclimatizing we will backpack along Big Pine Creek to the legendary Palisades, the longest spine of 13,000-14,000-foot peaks in the lower 48 states. We will travel 16 miles (3600’ elevation gain) over 3 days; exploring several of the alpine lakes and the largest glaciers in the Sierras. Be sure to have some good boots and full camera battery, you’ll need them.
