I meet with my travel buddy Ryan in California. The main plan is to reach the awe-inspiring landscapes of Yosemite National Park, but something different hits our radar. With a bit of research, look for some incredible images in the lesser known Kennedy Meadows and Relief Reservoir four hours north. This leads us to switch our plans and go a simple overnight backpacking trip into your northern California wilderness. It’s my first-time backpacking in California, and so i can only imagine what this hike holds for people like us.
