Plates in: Souvenir of the 1925 outing of the Sierra Club, page 9.
Hiker leading mule, canoe strapped to pack saddle.
Beginning in 1901, the Sierra Club held an annual outing into the Sierras, eventually known as the High Trip. Up until 1930, outings led by William Colby. 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.
In vicinity of Marjorie Lake, on July 19th, hikers met up with Jesse Lasky, his son and companions. Lasky's group had come up via Sawmill Pass to Woods Lake, hauling the canoe for fishing. Had also brought cameras and were taking motion pictures. Jesse L. Lasky was film producer, owner of Famous Players-Lasky Corporation.
