Possibly my favorite picture from this weekend. I set up a timelapse of us making hot cocoa and cooking food on the summit of Chocolate Peak. But I messed it up and apparently my gopro just took 1000 photos instead of making a video timelapse. 😂. Anyways... this was one of the thousand ... eating lunch and having cocoa on the summit.... these are my favorite moments of all hikes... the ones where u are sitting down and enjoying the nature around you.... we were on the summit for over an hour... just hangin out.
This was an easy summit.... only about 2k gain to hit the 11,682 summit. The real treat is the chocolate lakes loop. You see 7 lakes up close and a lot more from the summit.(south lake, bull lake, chocolate lake 1,2, &3, ruwau lake, and long lake. Plus views of cloud ripper, bishop pass, hurd peak, mount goode, picture puzzle, and many others that I dont know the name of. Solid 9ish miles with the loop and the peak. #chocolatepeak#chocolatelakes#bishoppasstrail#hiking#easternsierra#sierras#mountains
We got up at 3:30 am to hike Glen Pass and watch the sunrise. We did both Glen Pass (11.9k ft) and Forrester Pass (13.4k ft) in one morning. Setting ourselves up for hiking Mt Whitney the next day!
