Kings Canyon August 2009

Vicki and I backpacked into the Monarch Divide region of Kings Canyon National Park in August 2009. It was an eight day trek. It was also the culmination of a lot of planning, as we hadn’t done a long backpacking trip for several years, not since our sons were in the Boy Scouts. Coincidentally, it fell onĀ our 25th wedding anniversary, so we decided to celebrate that, too.
