A commentator (Jennifer S.) points out that I failed to reveal to my vast constituency where I went on vacation a couple of weeks ago, after promising a billion bonus points to whoever could identify the spot from a photo (below).
Well, no one knew, but I didn’t mean to be quite so coy about it. What I call Secret Camp is located about thirty minutes from Mineral King as the crow flies, in a little-known corner of the Southern Sierra called Big Five Lakes. I’ve camped all over the Sierras, but this is the place against which I have come to measure all other camps. More before too long, but for now, here are a couple of pics:
The first is from the sleeping porch out back, and looks eastward with the rays of the setting sun towards Mt. Whitney, which you can as a little triangle twenty-eight miles away, slightly to the left.
The second looks south towards the eye-catching Sawtooth Peak, which dominates the region.
