2CT rating. Join Xiaomei Wang and Andy Westbom on a historic adventure into Emigrant Wilderness. We'll hike fom Kennedy Meadow to Upper Summit Creek on day one. On our layover day we'll loop through the Emigrant Trail area, visiting Emigrant Meadow, the Emigrant Lakes and possibly Emigrant Pass. We'll be lucky to hear echos of rolling, bouncing wagon trains, barking dogs, and the lowing of trail-weary stock, as emigrants passed through here in the mid-1800's. Experienced backpackers please contact Xiaomei Wang to apply. Individual commissary.
