Ansel Adams Wilderness Plans

A view of Mount Ritter, from Mount Ritter.

I managed to get the last two Labor Day weekend backcountry permits for the section of the Ansel Adams Wilderness that I want to share with Doc. Hooray! That area is so unbelievably beautiful that it makes my heart ache.

The last time I was backpacking in the area, it was to climb Mount Ritter. A gorgeous mountain surrounded by lakes and rugged beauty. This was also around Labor Day weekend, I believe. But: Ritter was a pretty technical mountain to climb, so Doc and I will just be milling about and enjoying the scenery. No mountaineering on this upcoming trip. I will mention, though, even if you don’t summit any mountains during your trip, this area is completely rewarding!

I’d invite you guys to come with, but I snagged the last two permits for the area!
