March 9, 2013 Climbing the Hump
The High Sierra, the alpine and subalpine regions of Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks account for the majority of these parks. And you want to see them – in the winter. We are lucky to have the Pear Lake ski hut to make exploring more comfortable for those of us who prefer a bunk to an igloo. But what about THE HUMP with its 2200’ elevation gain in just 2.5 miles? Well, let’s go check it out! This will be challenging full-day trial of our winter travel skills as we make our way to the top where we will meet the Pear Lake hut caretaker. After a well-deserved rest and replenishing lunch, we will head back to the trail head confident in our ability to travel safely, snow or shine, into this winter wonderland. Limited to 10 participants. $55 members/ $63 non-members. Rated: Strenuous. Expert guide and snow shoes included.
These and more trips will be available in 2013. Watch www.sequoiahistory.org for more information. All proceeds from our trips support education and resource protection in Sequoia and Kings Canyon National Parks.
