Summer in the high Sierra

Ahhh!!! The Eastern front of the mighty Sierra Nevada met my eyes as I drove into Bishop, CA in late August. I ended up spending a week working out of Bishop as part of Phase II of Field Training. I had several opportunities to patrol in and have some time off in the mountains surrounding this beautiful town. The biggest highlight was a hike up to Bishop Pass (over 11,200 feet), which is also a back entrance into Kings Canyon National Park. The high mountain lakes glistened like sapphires in the crisp mountain air. It's hard to beat summer in the mountains!


  1. The terrain looks exactly the same as the route of the JMT through the high Sierra! If you continue from Bishop Pass, you intersect the JMT/PCT in Leconte Canyon, where I camped on day 10 of my trip :)

  2. I've got my work cut out for me in the photo department.
