This is a video from a 4 day backpacking trip in Sequoia National Park this past week just as the park was opening up again. I did the first confirmed summit of Mt Silliman this year and spent a few amazing days on and off trail around Twin Lakes, Ranger Lake, Crescent Lake an Silliman Lake. Enjoy!

Enjoyed the beautiful scenery and of course, the bear encounter. What did the daytime temperatures get up to on your trip?

Hey, the day temperature got up to mid 60s while I was out there, but it did feel warmer with the sun, night was below freezing the first night and then around 35 for the rest of the nights I believe. Thanks for watching!

Beautiful area, thanks for sharing another great trip report. I have yet to venture into that part of the Sierra.

Looks like you had great weather, but I was only able to skim the video (no time to watch 45 mins). Do you have any highlight photos of the trip?
