Trip: Alta Peak - Sequoia NP

Date: 9/25/2010

Trip Report:


A hike up 11,204 ft Alta Peak in Sequoia National Park to help acclimate for the Rae Lakes Loop adventure run the following day. Alta Peak has a spectacular view of the Great Western Divide which was a bit hazy on this day due to the nearby Sheep Fire which has been burning since mid July. I will definitely return to Alta Peak in the winter and/or spring to soak in the 360 degree view in clear conditions and with a coat of snow over the peaks. The area around Alta Peak is also relatively accessible in the winter for some great backcountry skiing.


From L to R: Thunder Peak, Table Mountain, Midway Mountain, Milestone Mountain, Centennial Peak. Can these five peaks be traversed in one day?




Black Kaweah and the Kaweah Range
