Ascent Trip Report

Hike from Glen Aulin to May Lake High Sierra Camp. MUCH more up than down - a lot of vertical gain at a higher altitude....but BEAUTIFUL. Absolutely stunning. Pack weight somewhere around 35 pounds - still a lot of dust and dirt and grim on the trail.... but high alpin forrests were beautiful. Didn't see many other people on the trails... some big elevation gains and lossees, but ended up about 1400 feet higher than we camped the day before. Possibly up to 3000+ foot elevation gain on the trail though...?
