Just some more ice cold water with pretty fish in it. The outlet of Muriel Lake at the feet of the Glacier Divide spills down a series of benches to the Golden Trout Lakes below. #humphreysbasin is spectacular backcountry in the #highsierras and the beginning of a long, circuitous route into #kingscanyonnationalpark. #sierranevada #inyonationalforest #instanature #instagood #ourplanetdaily #viewbugfeature #discoverearth #EarthCapture #usinterior #nps #nps100 #nps101 #canon #canon📷 #canonusa #canonphotography #canon_photos #landscapephotography #natgeotravel #natgeoyourshot #natgeolandscape #natgeoadventure @backpackermag @outsidemagazine @usinterior

N Lake / S Lake Loop - August ‘17. All the water from last winter made the land more alive - and impervious. #kingscanyon #sequoianationalpark #dusybasin #bishoppass #muirpass #evolutionvalley #paiutepass #humphreysbasin #johnmuirtrail #sierranevada

This is my great friend JZ, who insists on remaining Instanonymous. JZ likes #flyfishing. No, JZ is obsessed with fly fishing. He was perfectly content nailing brooks and rainbows in the South Fork Bishop Creek, but I insisted on dragging him 6 miles deep into the high country to get him his first #goldentrout. After all he flew 3,000 miles for it. Pretty sure he hated me for it on the way up but once he saw the view from #piutepass he understood. Once he landed his first Golden, he was really on board. Though I suck at fly fishing, I greatly admire those who excel at it. Watching them get in the zone is the same as with any other skill, craft, sport or art. You just sit dumbfounded and wonder how they do it. #getoutside #highsierra #humphreysbasin #canon #canonusa #canonphotography @bassproshops #canon_photos @usinterior @usfws #EarthCapture @flyfishermanmagazine @melbyss #viewbugfeature #visitcalifornia #troutbum

Mount Humphreys is one of the most imposing peaks in the #sierranevada. It's a California #13er (only 14 ft. shy of a #14er) boasts over 2,000 feet of prominence, and the easiest route to the summit is a tough Class 4. It stands sentinel over its namesake Humphreys Basin as an iconic example of the majesty the Range of Light, so much so that it is one of the 15 Sierra Emblem peaks as designated by @sierraclub. It's a mountain that simply demands your attention. #mounthumphreys #EarthCapture #ourplanetdaily #natgeotravel #instanature #natgeolandscape #natgeoadventure #canon_photos #canonphotography #camp4pix #canon📷 #discoverearth #usinterior #inyonationalforest #piutepass #humphreysbasin #californiaadventure #california13ers #highsierra #getoutside @backpackermag @outsidemagazine

Just reaching the pass, taking a moment to let the scenery sink in... oh and that storm we were running from was something else. @cynthia.i.rodriguez #PiutePass #HumphreysBasin #CampRFA2017 #WISEpack #WISEbackpacks #bearsafe #bearcontainer #bearresistant #backpack #backpacking #easternSierra #outdoor #outdooradventures #fieldtest #piutepasstrail

Took the #WISEpack up over #PiutePass into #HumphreysBasin. What an adventure! Rain wasnt an issue for anything in the pack. As long as it is placed on the correct end, it will shed the water all day, all night. #WISEbackpacks #easternSierra #outdooradventures #optoutside #bearresistant #backpack #bearcontainer #bearsafe #rainproof #drygearmakesahappycamper
