Walking is man’s best medicine. –Hippocrates . . Melaina and Haley passing through Humphreys Basin on the way back to JMT/PCT. In the background is the picturesque Mt. Humphreys (13,986 ft.), another peak to bag in the future. #HumphreysBasin #MtHumphreys #PiuteCanyon

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

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

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

Walking in Humphreys Basin. @adventurela and @bassheadjones leading the way up to Desolation Lake where they and @ez_livin_adventures parted ways with @alexrrocha and I to adventure further because they had longer vacation time.

Our first backpacking trip together was amazing! Mother nature gave us a little taste of what she has to offer; heavy rain, hail, winds, and also some lightning that almost damn near hit our camp 😥 but we survived nonetheless! It was so much fun. Cant wait to plan our next trip! 🌲🏕🏞⛺🌄🌌🌫⛈🎣 #backpacking #hiking #sierranevada #mountains #optoutside #rei1440project #humphreysbasin #adventure #explore #nature #wisepack

Returned from a beautiful and snowy summer trip in the Sierra Nevada after a week teaching @idyllwildarts. This view of a collapsed snow bridge in front of Mount Humphreys on the Sierra Crest in the John Muir Wilderness on June 28 shows what an epic year 2017 was for snow. I am so thankful for the opportunity to return to these mountains and spend some time on the granite and late season snow. #sie#sierraonalforest #inyonationalforest #johnmuirwilderness #granite #suncups #snowbridge #sierranevada #sierranevadas #sierra #highsierra #highsierras #sierrasummer #mou#mountaineer/a> #mountaineer #backpacking #backcountry #piutepass #piutepasstrail #humphreysbasin

Got back from an epic trip to #humphreysbasin with @jonerzz and @monksphere . The whole basin was still blanketed in snow with no signs of any recent human presence at all. All the lakes were still frozen. Here is Jonah resting at the top of Muriel Peak at 12937 ft. #seeingtrails
