Back from the Back Country...

The trail down to Lone Pine Creek
We just returned from a week spent in Sequoia National Park and the High Sierra Back Country. We stayed at a phenomenal place 11.3 miles from the park on the High Sierra Trail, Bearpaw High Sierra Camp.
Beautiful vista from the High Sierra Trail

I'll be back soon to add (much) more to this post, but thought I'd share some photos in the meantime. These first three were taken along the trail...
The Great Western Divide starts to come into view

Below is the camp lodge...

Two of the six tent cabins...
Tents 1 and 2

This was the view from the camp. No, Really.

A sample of the food we ate over three days. Fresh baked breads and homestyle desserts are their specialty. Need I say more??
Poundcake with Berries and Whipped Cream

This is (as you can probably imagine) but a small sample - I could not stop taking pictures of this place. If you're interested - more photos can be found here. (We even saw a couple of bears!)

Hope you had a wonderful Labor Day weekend too!
