Backpacking the High Sierra

What does it mean to suffer better? Highs and lows, strong hikes and epic views, weight on your shoulders and moments of relief with yoga and Thai massage, tired feet and well-deserved meals cooked for you. Retreat into the unknown, challenge yourself, allow the quiet of nature or a helping hand to guide your way. You will be guided by Sonia and Casey for 5 days of elegant suffering in the High Sierras. Join this temporary nomadic tribe today before it fills up! 

-Push into remote backcountry
-Undertake a significant personal challenge in a supportive environment
-Swim in pristine alpine lakes
-Enjoy Thai massage and partner-flying/AcroYoga
-Practice yoga in nature

Over the course of this five-day backpacking trip, we will cover 30 miles of trail through one of the remotest parts of Sequoia National Park. Starting at Crescent Meadow, we make our way deep into the Sierra Nevada mountains, winding through forests and alpine meadows, dipping in glacial lakes, and crossing several high mountain passes. Participants will come away with backpacking skills needed for future trips of their own, as well as an expanded sense of ease and safety at being in the mountains. Although most days will involve significant hours on the trail we always make time for playful and restorative practices. This is a great physical challenge, as well as an opportunity to cultivate inner-stillness.

Note: All participants must arrive at the Lodgepole Campground by 3p.m. on August 17th, the first day of the trip. We will spend the night at camp before hiking out the next day, August 18th, to receive you at your leisure. Meals begin with breakfast on the 18th.

Trip includes two WFR certified guides and professional instructors, meals and snacks, campground and permit fees, first-aid supplies and some group gear for camping. We will send you a full packing list with recommendations.
