Mount Langley

The southernmost fourteen’er 14,042 ft hiking and scrambling. We adventured up to the Sierra Nevada’s without a permit and planned on getting a walk in day hike permit to Mount Whitney which we could have. Instead though after talking to the ranger about permit options, we took her recommendation and  we got a permit to stay at Muir Lake for 2 nights. From this base camp we would climb another one of California’s Fourteen’ers Mount Langley. This was a beautiful backpacking trip with a long day hike to summit. We are very thankful the Ranger told us about this beautiful spot and encouraged us to come here and explore.  So many lakes, lush forests, deer, marmots and spectacular mountain views.

Horseshoe meadows where we spent the night before backpacking to Muir Lake

I think this tree is amazing, if you look it is smiling at you.
