Baldwin and Morrison

One weekend we got a backpacking permit for Convict Lake. We hiked in 4-5 miles to set up a camp and then hiked Mt. Baldwin. The next day we hiked back to the parking lot and then hiked Mt. Morrison. These definitely could have been done as two day hikes, but backpacking improved the experience tremendously. I had seem Morrison many times going up and down 395, and had always wanted to climb it.
