This is a belated post from a 8-day trip last summer into Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks. We started from Onion Valley, went over Kearsarge Pass and down into Bubbs Creek/Vidette Meadows. We continued south on the John Muir/PCT, with a side trip into Center Basin, and then over Forester Pass. Once in the upper Kern Basin, we visited a side basin before backtracking over Forester and Kearsarge Passes. We had hoped to exit via Shepherds Pass but the 2019 heavy snow pack and our lack of skill/gear prevented us from doing so.

We followed up this trip with a three day visit into Granite Park, with a failed attempt to visit Bear Lakes Basin.
