4th of July Monache Trail Getaway

4th of July Monache Trail Getaway

What a great summer!  Guillermo has taken some fantastic trips.  Here's the recap from 4th of July weekend.  It starts in Kennedy Meadow at the Grumpy Bear and ends on the Kern River.

There are many places to explore starting here, we chose the Monache Jeep Trail.  Not the easiest place to find, but an wonderful place to be.

You got to find this Ranger Station to get to the trail

The trail wasn't too challenging, but we did find a dead end or two.

The end of the trail is the beginning of the Golden Trout Wilderness.  So fun to 4 x 4 to the end of a road and get to FISH

Guillermo is geared up to fish the Golden Trout Wilderness

We spent the 4th of July with the stars as our fireworks.  They did an amazing job.  The next morning it was time to wander down to the Kern River

We finished with a night on the Kern River and a little more fishing.  Wish we had another week to explore everything.
