Big Pine Creek Backpack Itinerary (4 Days)

This itinerary covered a backpacking trip to Big Pine Creek and its many glacial lakes. I accompanied an organized group that included a good friend from High School (it was actually comprised of folks from the law firm he worked at), and it also marked the very first time I did a backpacking excursion since our Glen Aulin trip several years ago. As it turned out I had to shake off rust in terms of my physical shape as well as some equipment malfunctions. Fortunately, it all worked out in the end, and it introduced me to some of the Eastern Sierra scenery where the main attractions weren't necessarily waterfall-related...
