More backpacking: Kaweah Loop

I spent six nights on another backpacking excursion, this time starting at Whitney Portal and looping around the Kaweahs. I did some peak-bagging along the way: Hitchcock, Newcomb, Chamberlin, Ericsson, Kern Point, Centennial, Triple Divide, Lion Rock, Stewart, Kaweah Queen, Lawson, Eisen, Lipincott, Eagle Scout.

Here are the stats:

Day mi +
1 15.7 8800 6500
2 21.4 6500 6300
3 10.7 6900 6600
4 13.1 5300 6900
5 10.7 5700 5700
6 23.8 5200 4300
7 8.7 3400 5500
Total 104.1 41800 41800
