Well done.
I'm buying a packraft in the next year.

What a beautiful take on travel Ryan, it certainly paints a wonderfully romantic picture of high country passage!

Love these types of reports....pictures show all we need to know with just a few carefully worded captions.

Please have more articles like these.

Better to be inspired to actually get out on the trail vs. spending all of our time researching gear.

There is only soooo much gear porn that one should have in their life. :)

Route Summary on 05/21/2014 15:08:59 MDT Print View

Ryan:

Please provide a summary of your route. I spend a week or two every year rambling in the Sierra and am always interested new ideas. Was the pack raft needed to make the route viable?

Thanks, Art

"I'm buying a packraft in the next year."

An excellent antidote for endless talus, not to mention a great way to fish some of the larger lakes.

This was very good. How cold are those lakes? I know people swim in them (briefly) but have never heard of anyone swimming across them as a planned strategy.

I'm also curious to know where these places are.

Wow, what an amazing trip.

I'm mostly curious about those hand paddles. Are they MYOG? Looks like a great idea.
