10 Day Solo Hike In Kings Canyon & John Muir Wilderness

Postby MetalBackpacker » Tue Oct 18, 2016 5:00 pm

For my annual summer week long alpine hike, I decided to visit the Sierras. My route began at Florence Lake and formed a 95 mile loop over 10 days in late August.

Breakdown of the route hiked:

Day 1 - Florence Lake to Evolution Valley/Goddard Canyon Junction
Day 2 - Evolution Valley/Goddard Canyon Junction to McGee Lake
Day 3 - McGee Lake to Lake 11,196 - Skipped Ionian Basin due to weather
Day 4 - Lake 11,196 to Darwin Bench
Day 5 - Darwin Bench to Muriel Lake, going over Alpine Col
Day 6 - Muriel Lake to Elba Lake, going over Carol Col (aka Puppet Pass)
Day 7 - Elba Lake to Granite Park, going over Royce Pass
Day 8 - Granite Park to Vee Lake going over Italy Pass & Dancing Bear Pass
Day 9 - Vee Lake to Marie Lake
Day 10 - Marie Lake to Florence Lake, going over Seldon Pass
