The High Sierra Trail on Film

You know how they say you should practice what you preach? Yeah – when it comes to being ultalight, I don’t do that. Like at all… which is exactly how I ended up bringing two rolls of film onto the High Sierra Trail!

We took some studs, some duds, and everything in between. But really, it was just so much fun to shoot film on our epic journey – and even more fun to get them developed a few months later and get to relive our hike all over again!

Day 1: Crescent Meadow to Bearpaw Meadow

Unfortunately, I didn’t remember to break out the camera until after dark, so this was the only photo that we took on the first day of our hike. I’d officially call this one a “dud,” but I had to include it to at least have one photo for Day 1!

Day 2: Bearpaw Meadow to Precipice Lake

Day 3: Precipice Lake to Moraine Lake

Day 4: Moraine Lake to Junction Meadow

Day 5: Junction Meadow to Crabtree Meadow

Day 6: Crabtree Meadow to Guitar Lake

Day 7: Guitar Lake to Whitney Portal

What better place to gain inspiration from Ansel Adams than the Sierra itself?!
