Ansel Adams Wilderness- Journey 1

Originally named the Minarets Wilderness when established in 1964, the wilderness was expanded and renamed in honor of Ansel Adams, well-known environmentalist and nature photographer who is famous for his black and white landscape photographs of the Sierra Nevada.  it is now 231,000 acres of quintessential High Sierra backcountry.  This was the first of three planned visits, which skirted the eastern margin, just to look at where I would explore next.
