In 1925, 190 hikers trailed by some 150 pack animals and cooks, hiked into that portion of Sierra Nevada mountains forming watershed of the Kings and San Joaquin Rivers. Hikers broke into small groups, exploring various different trails – album follows one small group from the beginning in Giant Forest in Sequoia National Park to its end at Camp 63 (California Edison Company) in Kings Canyon National Park.
