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.
