Every backpacking trip has a subtitle, a theme, a concept, or vision behind it.
Every trip is a learning experience; about yourself, the people you are with,
and the mountain environment.

The Sierras are best enjoyed when you are in good shape. Not only will you be
carrying a pack, but this is high altitude hiking with lots of elevation gain
and loss, and extensive multi-thousand foot passes.

and clothing. Make any necessary improvements.

Food is a multifaceted trail topic, and very important on the trail.
As the day of departure nears you will want to collect your gear and clothes and

helps to focus on the things that are most likely to happen, and then be
prepared for the rest.
