Alta Peak adventures

Topping off a great weekend in Fresno, we made a scramble up to Alta Peak.  Original plan was to run over to Pear Lake (seen in photos below from the summit) but a last minute change at the trail split allowed us to experience some amazing views up in the clouds!  Neither Jae nor I have ever ran in the Sierras before and this was her first summit of any kind (not bad, at 11.2k ft, 4300ft gain) .   We fell in love with the area instantly.  The change of scenery was spectacular!  I’ll let the pictures speak for themselves.  Definitely coming back, perhaps for the full High Sierra Trail traverse and FKT attempt.  It’s too gorgeous to not do!
