King’s Canyon: Sunrise
by Tripp Burwell -- July 2nd, 2015
I’ve taken the opportunity of being out here to visit places in the Sierras I haven’t been to yet. I recently did two sunrise walks in King’s Canyon National Park and this post shows photos from that trip.
The first hike was up Lookout Peak, a sparsely traveled hike near Cedar Grove. The walk is pretty straightforward with some nice boulder problems at the top, if you’re into that sort of thing. A great spot for solitude – decent amount of effort required.
For the second, I walked up Kearsage Pass to Mt. Gould, on the West Side of the Park, near Independence, California. Kearsage sees a fair bit of folks (although not pre-sunrise), but Gould is also pretty sparsely traveled. Some nice problems at the top of this one too.
