We pull out all the stops on this fabulous trip – you won’t be disappointed in the scenery or the food!

Pack animals carry our gear into our High Sierra camp near gorgeous Humphrey's Basin. This is a base camp trip, which means we're going to make a base camp and stay in the same camp for every night of our trip. You can make your mountain vacation as challenging or as restful as you wish.

Our day hikes take us to pristine glacier-fed lakes and fragile alpine meadows Humphrey's Basin is a wildly beautiful windswept moonscape dotted with lakes featuring granite sand beaches and surrounded by high peaks. There will be plenty of time to hike, fish, swim or just hang out in camp and read.

The menu for this unique trip incorporates many recipes difficult to prepare when moving camp day to day.  Guides will prepare fresh baked desserts, delicious stews, and multi course meals. You’ll be shocked at what our guides can prepare at 10,000 feet!

You'll be treated to spectacular scenery, wonderful food, camaraderie and good conversation around the campfire.  To read the May 2006 article in Cooking Light Magazine, click here.
