Comment: Just came back from a nice four-day backpack into the upper Kern Basin of Sequouia National Park in California. There was a fire in nearby Kings Canyon, which made for some smokey evening scenes. This was also my last trip using my Nikkor 18-200mm, as I smashed it against rocks as I slipped on some black ice!!! I've replaced it with the new 24-300mm Nikkor. Overall, a great trip however. Lakes still frozen above 12,000'!!!!
