Backpacker Magazine: Classic Parks, No Crowds Edition

Backpacker Magazine just ran their August issue, and they featured one of my Mt. Langley photos on page 61 (cover photo is not mine). Mt. Langley (14,026′) is the southern-most 14’er in the Sierra Nevada range, and is a great hike to do over a couple days. If you’re feeling ambitious, you can knock off the 22 miles and 4,000′ vertical feet in a day.

This image is from the nicely maintained trail just below New Army Pass. Most folks opt for this smoother route in spite of the extra couple miles it adds to the route to the summit, but a few still take the rockier and steeper Old Army Pass route.
