Our Adventure on the 72+ Mile High Sierra Trail

The High Sierra Trail crosses the Sierras from west to east. It starts in Crescent Meadow in Sequoia National Park, reaches the summit of Mount Whitney, and ends at Whitney Portal.

On July 29, 2017, my son Wes, his wife Liz, and I started an amazing 72-mile trek across the High Sierra. It was actually more like 80 miles because we got lost at one point. Total elevation gain: ~15,000 feet. Total elevation loss: ~13,000 feet. Total adventure: Priceless.
