Kennedy Meadows Pack Station has a Kid's Horse Camp?
I can't think of a better way to show kids the balance of responsibility, fun, trail skills, camp skills, horses, and mules than Kennedy Meadows Pack Station putting on a Kid's Horse Camp.
Well, imagine that, they've gone and done it!
Man, I wish I was a Kid!
Matt should put on a mule-packing camp for old backpackers!
I am looking for some trailhead infromation for the Tahoe - Yosemite Trail. So far I have hiked from Fallen Leaf Lake to Mt. Reba (three hikes). The next section will be from Lake Alpine to Clark Fork and then Clark Fork to Kennedy Meadow.
I am concerned about the lenght of the Kennedy Meadow - Tuolumne Meadow section (71 miles). The book I have inidcates there are no trailheads between Kennedy and Tuolumne Meadows. Does anyone know of any trailheads I could use to break this hike into smaller sections?
All the information you need to get yourself on a California Conservation Corps Backcountry Trail Crew.
One of the main missions of the CCC is to get kids ready for the High Sierra. Thus their prep information, their gear lists, their bits of wisdom and insight are very intelligent. If you or your kids don't have any common sense, the CCC will induce it.
The site linked to above contains much valuable information.
Finding my way North down from the top of the Clarks Fork Headwaters Bowl to the beginning of the Clarks Fork of the Stanislaus River brought me through some rough terrain.
After finding my way down through a channel between the steep cliffs protecting the headwaters I approached the burbling creek that begins the Clarks Fork's voyage down-mountain when this beautiful butterfly flew by.
A lot of people may think it strange to speak of heat safety in the Sierra Nevada Mountains. But it is not. This harsh environment of extremes often serves up high temperatures.
