Kennedy Meadows – Hiking Without the Pain of the Pack

From the California Gold Rush town of Sonora, follow Highway 108 east for 30 miles, and before you hit Sonora Pass (9,600), you come to one of the most beautiful spots on Earth: Kennedy Meadows. Because of swarming mosquitos, our three days of backpacking and two days of car camping turned into 5 days of car camping with our days spent fishing and hiking the Pacific Crest Trail from Sonora Pass. Over the next couple of weeks, I’ll talk about the trip and show photos of our three trout dinners, hikes up to 11,000 feet and other adventures. Until then … Be light. Be Safe. Be one with the pack.
