Rae Lakes Loop

Robert and his lawyer-friend Josh Koltun returned late last night from Sequoia Kings Canyon National Park where they completed the 42-mile (or 46-mile, or 49-mile, whatever) Rae Lakes Loop backpacking hike. This is one of the most popular hikes in the Sierra. It includes about 20 miles worth of the PCT/John Muir Trail. Robert and Josh survived car-swallowing raging rivers, hard granite trails, lots of bears and rattlesnakes, Glen Pass, and, most frightening, Don Chuy’s Taqueria in Madera.  It was a tough one for old guys.  Lots of blisters and achy joints.  But well worth it for the sense of accomplishment and access to beautiful scenery.
