The Sierra Nevada

The summer after I graduated from college, I made it my goal to explore as much of California's Sierra Nevada as I could.

Once a month, for four months, I made a trip to the Sierra, toting, of course, my brand new Nikon dSLR. There was a 60-mile loop through northern Yosemite, and two epic off-trail adventures up the peaks of Kings Canyon. I have seen mountains all over the world, but none so beautiful as the Sierra Nevada.
