High Sierra Loop: VVR to Independence

We traveled through familiar territory after leaving well-fed and rested from the Vermillion Valley Resort and hiked up over Muir Pass with its pollen flecked lakes and bold marmots. The swimming was great in the high lakes like Wanda and Dollar. We stumbled into a party on top of Kearsarge Pass on the fourth of July before we made our way down to Independence for a resupply.
