    • Wish I could have joined, I have always wanted to backpack deep into the Sequoia back country. It seems to me that every time I venture into the Sierra's the weather is never as expected and always seems to be a lot colder than forecasted. But I find this to be one of the most alluring parts of the Sierra's. The fact that due to the ever changing circumstances and conditions in the Sierra's makes it so that not every person and not everyday you can make it to the summit, over a pass, or to the campsite. And the times that you don't make it make for the greatest adventures and stories. These so called 'unsuccessful' adventures make the successful ones ever more sweet.

    • There is nowhere like the Sierra of California in North America. It has a special place in my heart. It's the only region of vast uninterrupted alpine land. There are thousands of square miles of lakes and plateaus above the treeline. Other ranges, like the Rockies, have many tall peaks but not as much concentrated high country.

    • I had that same thought. If you could start a conversation as a panel and then later change it to a normal conversation so everyone else could comment, I think that could be a useful feature.

    • Thanks! Had to come back to look at the photos myself. I miss the adventure already.

      I forgot to share this photo @xelanil shot. It's our mountain shadow as we descended from Shepherd Pass on the last night.
