The Sierras in Five Highlights

We are back from a week-long backpacking trip in the Sierra Nevadas in late August.  I love backpacking because it simplifies life: you get up when it's light, you see beautiful things, you eat, and you fall asleep when it's dark.  This trip took it to the next level.  Most of the 75 miles were "cross-country," meaning there was no trail.  It was up to us to navigate between stunning lakes and crushing passes.
