Since 1991, Southern Yosemite Mountain Guides has shown thousands of people the beauty of the mountains and wild places in Yosemite Nat’l Park, the Ansel Adams and John Muir Wilderness, Sequoia & Kings Canyon Nat’l Parks, and the Eastern Sierra region. SYMG is a leader in the active travel and mountain guiding world, providing carefully planned and operated trips and programs in the most spectacular Wilderness areas of California.

This video was taken on a 5-day section of the John Muir Trail. This adventure hike started at Florence Lake and went to Edison Lake. The guided trip was filmed for Motion TV with host Greg Aiello and aired in October, 2011.

I created TheBackpackerTV because of my passion for the outdoors and seeing nature up close and personal. To share my experiences, and the experiences of others for everyone to enjoy. We go watch hundreds of videos each month picking the very best for you. Enjoy!
