We went on an Eleven Day backpacking trek on the High Sierra Trail. We hiked it from East to West (reverse of the usual way) for over 70 miles, starting in Horseshoe Meadows in the Inyo National Forest and ending at Crescent Meadow in Sequoia National Park. We climbed over Cottonwood Pass to join the Pacific Crest Trail, then hiked north on the PCT until the intersection with the High Sierra Trail, just north of Mount Whitney. We had a truly excellent and unforgettable time in the High Sierra.
