It was a hang out with friends and take a break from wheeling. R&RNice vid! I go there a few times a year, to camp and hunt. Those are some tasty little goldens. A great spot to fish is the pool about 100 yards south of where you crossed the S. Fork Kern river in the vid.
I can't believe that you guys drove all the way out there and didn't run the Sherman Pass trail? I get to Monanche meadows in my 2WD truck.
