Our high elevation route started at Horseshoe Meadow 10000', summited Mt. Whitney 14505' , and exited at Onion Valley 9185'. Other highlights included Cottonwood Pass, Guyot Pass, Guitar Lake, Bighorn Plateau, Forester Pass, and Kearsarge Pass. Our crew of 5 performed very well, and we enjoyed each other's company. The landscapes were amazing.

We convalesced in Santa Cruz after exiting the back country. That was very relaxing. Our group then expanded from 5 to 12 people for more fun at Outsidelands in Golden Gate Park.
