Jennie Lake Wilderness backpacking adventure, July 2012

A great backpacking trek high up in the Sierras! We first attempted this trip last summer but due to the heavy snowfall the wilderness was still closed. This year there was not a snowbank to be seen; after a gentler winter we could venture deep into the high Sierra wilderness. Scouts and scouters backpacked a tough route, with overnight stops at Jennie Lake and Weaver Lake for some great fishing and swimming. Check out the great raft put together by scouts, who, unlike their adult leaders, had plenty of energy left after long days of backpacking.
