The Eastern Sierra

Join us as we explore the Eastern Sierra, where gorgeous mountain peaks and dense forests contrast with beautiful desert scenery. Learn about the natural history of California as we explore the geology, flora, and fauna of the region. We'll take spectacular hikes among the alpine lakes and craggy peaks, and then sleep under the stars as we enjoy the beautiful night skies. This is a perfect trip for someone looking to get into the sport of backpacking, or a chance to hone and practice your skills and techniques. As we cover backcountry navigation, map reading, backcountry cooking, outdoorsmen ethics, and other technical skills.
