Sierra Weekend ideas from LA area on 07/10/2013 21:21:44 MDT Print View

Taking my wife on her first weekend backpacking trip and I need some ideas for weekend trips in the Sierra. Considering going to Cottonwood lakes from Horseshoe Meadows. Any other ideas?

If you are looking for a nice little trip on the Westerly Slope you might like to check out Twin lakes out of Badger flats/ potter pass area. Fun walk, very beautiful without a ton of work.

I have been up there solo, and i have taken my 72 year old dad. He had so much fun that this year he went up Big Pine Creek North Fork with me. It is a nice trip without a lot of climbing.
