The area is badly burned, and just starting to show signs of recovery. Summit areas of Sunday Peak and nearby Portuguese Peak retain quite a few live conifers. Beautiful place.
From the gate, it's over 16 miles RT but not that difficult. Beautiful weather all day.
A quick hike to burn off some Turkey dinner :). Great view!

A nice hike through the forest to finish the last of my HPS peaks in the Sierra.
With Caren and Zeus after spending a cold night at the trail head. Storm the day before had dumped abut an inch of snow making for a pretty hike. Previously attempted from Bohna 18 months earlier but later start, snow, and fallen trees forced us to turn around.
With my girls, great hike.
Very nice hike. Great views.
I went on a hike with the Kern River Valley Hiking Club to the top of Sunday Peak.

A fun snowshoe outing with Matthew and Mike, below. Trip Report
Hiked up yesterday with the Kern River Valley Hiking Club. Great views of the Needles, the Great Western Divide, Whitney, Langley, Baker Point, etc.
Hiked in about a mile from the trailhead under bright moonlight and the next day summited and it was a great view. There are some beautiful big trees along the hike, too.
From SR155 via Bohna, with Bob and Mike. Clouds drifted in and out, but during the times they periodically cleared there were some fine views of Langley, Whitney, and the surrounding area.
Snowshoe climb from SR155, tagging Bohna en route. Descended back to Greenhorn summit for a quick car shuttle.
Easy hike, great view.
