Backpacking Sequoia 4K Highlights: Kaweah Gap/Hamilton Lakes/Black Rock Pass

Backpacking Sequoia 4K Highlights: Kaweah Gap/Hamilton Lakes/Black Rock Pass

Watch full trip video here: https://youtu.be/mHTrKD2DiKg . These are the highlights from a very smoky backpacking trip into Sequoia National Park, part of California’s Sierra Nevada Mountains. I did a loop out of Cresent Meadows, going over Black Rock Pass, Kaweah Gap, and past the Hamilton Lakes area. Part of the route was along the High Sierra Trail. I did this trip the second week of November, 2018

    So glad to see the cleanliness of the trail – apparently no rubbish.

    Wow..I am amazed at your choice of footware. Not criticizing just cant imagine not having ankle protection and wearing sneakers..but to each their own. I can imagine that you have strong and powerful leg muscles from all of your hiking adventures. Great Video !

    Finally visited a few weeks ago. Why did it take me 31 years to visit this place! California is Gold.

    How did you NOT get lost?..

  6. Marco de Leon on January 27, 2020 at 8:50 am

    Can I mountain bike that trail. Instead of walking ?

  7. idontknow whomyouare on January 27, 2020 at 8:51 am

    Awesome! Stay safe brother! May Allah protect you!

  17. Kayla Fleener on January 27, 2020 at 9:03 am

    Great video!! Thank you!

  18. alexng4 on January 27, 2020 at 9:04 am

    I would love to do these types of solo hiking. But I’m so paranoid of being attacked by bears or mountain lions.

  19. Alberto Cayente Junior on January 27, 2020 at 9:06 am

    But what if you encounter a bear?

  20. sensible solution on January 27, 2020 at 9:07 am

    Its all beautiful ,I hope it remains this way forever,but it won’t.You are a respectful person ,thank GOD for your journey.

  21. Andrew Jennings on January 27, 2020 at 9:10 am

    A dream journey for many of us…thank you for sharing it.

  23. The Ole Well on January 27, 2020 at 9:12 am

  24. phishkid6888 on January 27, 2020 at 9:15 am

  25. AMERICAN SNIPER on January 27, 2020 at 9:16 am

    Thank you so much man, for not add annoying music to your video.. I love it. I’m from Texas by the way

  26. awesomemilly1 on January 27, 2020 at 9:17 am

    Been meaning to ask you… what is your favourite multi -day hike in the USA?

  27. Carol Jorgensen on January 27, 2020 at 9:19 am

    Love the video. Love not having the annoying music so many videos have these days.

  28. TY Nature on January 27, 2020 at 9:19 am

    Great film. Nature is oftentimes too beautiful and magnificent to be simply described by words.

  29. Michael Tran on January 27, 2020 at 9:20 am

    Man you went back to grab the camera.

  30. Nathan Reo on January 27, 2020 at 9:21 am

    Sasquatch wood knocks at 3:56 and 3:59

  31. inyobill on January 27, 2020 at 9:21 am

    Very nice little documentary, outstanding job on the cinematography. I had always wanted to do a trans-Sierra, crossing Kaweah Gap. Won’t happen now, I do treasure my memories of the back country.

  32. csilt on January 27, 2020 at 9:23 am

    Please come back to this hike and do it again maybe in Spring? Without all of the smoke

  33. Devin Fontana on January 27, 2020 at 9:23 am

  34. Al D. on January 27, 2020 at 9:23 am

  36. John Farrell on January 27, 2020 at 9:25 am

    Great video, clear shots…..very well done. I agree….best with NO annoying music…well done. Iโ€™m doing a 32 mile trek from Green River Lakes Campground in July 2019….canโ€™t wait

  37. RedPlasticBuddha on January 27, 2020 at 9:26 am

    Is there a map you recommend? I’m planning a trip out there this fall and the map I have is not very detailed. Anything you’re aware of with campsites or water sources? Super cool video – thanks for posting.

  38. igotmail56 on January 27, 2020 at 9:28 am

    thank you for not putting stupid music

  39. Mike Vang on January 27, 2020 at 9:33 am

    You can have fires while backpacking?

  40. selfless on January 27, 2020 at 9:33 am

    Amazing video. I live in Serbia but my dream is to one day do a backpacking tip through California ๐Ÿ™‚

  41. Becca where2gonext on January 27, 2020 at 9:33 am

  43. Andrew Ball on January 27, 2020 at 9:34 am

    Any chance you could show your path that you took on a map? I can give you my email if you donโ€™t mind sending it to me. Iโ€™d like to follow the same trails.

  44. ern isern on January 27, 2020 at 9:36 am
