"I've always wanted to see a glacial lake. One day I was researching online locations of these glacial lakes besides Canada. As soon as I saw that there are a few in the Eastern Sierras, I knew I had to see it for myself.
We really didn't know what we were in for. And the locals warned us about the bear activity.
Needless to say, we made it to the First Lake and decided it would be our basecamp for the next 3 days. This photo was taken the following morning at sunrise.
The rest was just amazeballs."
Camping on Mount Whitney is not for the faint of heart, for it raises higher than any piece of land in the USA outside of Alaska.
The Slot Canyon at Anza-Borrego State Park was an optimal campspot for viewing the Perseids Meteor shower.
Those seeking an “alternative” campspot can find rest for a night on the Great Wall of China near the town of Huanghuacheng.
