Mineral King Backpack September 2008 : Herm and his older brother Ralph took a leisurely one week trek in the Sequoia National Park backcountry, accessed by way of Mineral King.  The brothers camped above the waters of lower Franklin Lake, then climbed over their highest pass yet on the way to a few days and nights along the shores of pretty Forester Lake.  In the end, they returned the way they came, and were richer for the experience.

High Sierra Trail/Mineral King Loop 8/08 : 60 mile loop from Wolverton along the High Sierra Trail south down the Kern, up and over Franklin Pass and out Mineral King.

Kennedy Meadows to Tuolumne Meadows Backpack 7/07 : 70 miles/7days mostly along the PCT from Highway 108 to Highway 120. Hiked with Theresa, Sam and Rob from TrailTalk and Nor Cal Hiking. It was a great adventure, one I will never forget. I didn't have time to edit these(except for omitting the lame ones), so they are straight out of the camera.
