Along the Eastern Sierras

Over the last 2 months I feel like I've been finally rolling out photos from the summer.  I feel like I'm perpetually 6 months behind on releasing personal photos - is that just what everyone does, but they hide it well?

I've been meaning to share this set of images for forever and if you follow me on Instagram you've probably seen a few of them anyway.  Over the summer, I dragged Jesse and a few friends up north to the Eastern Sierras - an area I'd never done much exploration in until this summer.  I'd read about a hike called "20 Lakes Basin", a popular day hike off highway 120 just outside the northeastern gates of Yosemite National Park, that I was just dying to do.  So we loaded up our Jeep rental (with the worst gas mileage known to man) and headed to a secluded camp ground 15mins north of Lee Vining, CA.

We scored a sweet campsite and the hike ended up being one of the best hikes of my life.  We hiked through snow-covered trails - seriously at times we weren't sure which way the trail went - threw plenty of snowballs at each other, and saw such stunning views.  I have to admit these are some of my personal favorite photos I've ever taken of the Sierras to date...
