Mono Pass to Piute Pass July 2022

Vicki and I did a ten day backpacking trek from Mono Pass to Piute Pass, starting in Little Lakes Valley, climbing over Mono Pass, descending Mono Creek, heading south on the John Muir Trail, climbing over Selden Pass, ascending Piute Creek, and, eventually, arriving at our car at North Lake.  We had a wonderful time exploring deep lakes, high peaks, stunning passes, and raging creeks.  All told, we hiked seventy miles, climbed nearly 12,000 feet, swatted many mosquitos, and caught countless trout, several of which we ate.
