Top 100 Photos From Our 221 Trek Through The Sierras

We spent 20 days hiking through the alpine terrain of the Sierra Nevada Mountains, all in an effort to show that type 1 diabetes can't stop you from doing anything and to raise funds for JDRF. With heavy packs, thin air, and towering mountain ranges, the journey was a difficult one, but oh so rewarding. The feeling of cresting a mountain pass and looking out on miles upon miles of land yet to be explored and discovered by us kept us craving more and more of the Sierra Nevadas.
