The Boothe family was trekking through Kings Canyon National Park, while I was climbing with friends in LeConte Canyon. I rendezvoused with the Boothes in Big Pete Meadow, and we spent two days returning to civilization via Bishop Pass. Click here for photographs. Highlights include:
Swimming at 11,388 feet:
A gnarly climb above LeConte Canyon:

Obscure notes for the future:
- There are two trailheads: Woods Lake and Carson Pass. The trail from Woods Lake is slightly shorter, but the trail from Carson Pass requires less climbing.
- Winnemucca Lake has plenty of camping spots, but the sites look heavily used. I think Round Top Lake has better (and more secluded) camping.
- The best swimming spots are along Lake Winnemucca’s west shore.
- The final climb to the summit is class-3 rock scramble. This climb can be scary, especially with strong wind.
