South Sierra: Bald Eagle Peak + Libel Peak on 05/17/2009 20:40:17 MDT Print View

This isn't really a backpacking trip since it was just 2 day hikes crammed into one. But it was my first hike so wanted to share it even though i didn't stay out overnight. Worst than that i was trying to get used to carrying around a pack so i had a little more weight that i should have for such short hikes! Mainly because i was carrying extra water but thats okay.

First note on this trip is road SNF 28S02 is absolutely brutal for a low clearance vehicle. You don't need 4wd but being off the ground is a must...very slow going.

Our first goal for the day was Bald Eagle Peak.

The TOP!

Kern River Valley i believe + my first geocache! (under the rocks)

I have fewer pictures from Liebel peak as the surronding area has suffered extreme fire damage.

That was my first trip. Wish i had stopped to take pictures of the road because some parts were just insane but was just trying to get through it safely and quickly.
