Here are a few photos from a recent packraft loop where we took packrafts up the Rush Creek Trail to Thousand Island Lake, did a loop using the Easy Saddle Pass from the Sierra High Route, and came back through Garnet Lake using the John Muir Trail to connect back to the Rush Creek Trail. It was an amazing adventure!!

Just got done with a trip through (some of) the same spots. Stunningly beautiful area and creative/fun to integrate the packrafts into your trip!
