High Sierra Loop: Independence to Road's End

This King's Canyon section took us over Kearsarge Pass and south to Mount Whitney where we got to try Peach Pie moonshine with some Michigan boys. From there, we hiked cross country to meet up with the High Sierra Trail and stopped to soak in Kern Hot Springs. We left the trail again at Lion Pass to travel through the wilds of Cloud Basin before making our way to Road's End.
