From "Just Back" on the Web: Just back from a nine-day trip to the Kaweahs, Kaweah Basin and Chagoopa Plateau in Sequoia National Park. This is about a 50-50 mix of trail and off-trail. The basin in the Sierra is spectacular and remote. The route included Big Arroyo waterslides. Sitings: Alpine lakes, Golden Eagle and boulder fields.
