South Fork Kern River

I've never been here before, this designated scenic and wild river drains the Southern Sierra and is a lot closer then the rest of the Sierra. I backpacked here with Christina and we were the only souls around besides two beavers wacking their tails in the swift moving water. We didn't even know they were there until after it sounded like someone threw a rock in the water while we were filling our camelbaks. Dam beavers had us looking around for a few seconds!

A few back lit clouds hovered over the right spot at sunrise. The oddly clumped grass islands caught my eye the day before so I returned at the following morning. Too much brush to get through for most of the river but that's why they call it wild and scenic. This is a 4 shot pano stitch with 3 bracketed shots for the dynamic range(= a lot of work).
