Artist Stefan Baumann embarks on one of his most rigorous journeys yet.  He and his crew hike 25 miles and ascend 10,000 feet into the back country of Kings Canyon National Park. Along his journey he sits down with his pack guide, Tim Loverin, whose family has been packing into the region since 1985, Ralph Wass, back country packer in the region, Kate Collins, interpretive ranger for the park, and Joel Despain, park cave specialist. Baumann concludes by painting the backcountry’s Rae Lakes. Continue exploring America’s National Parks with Stefan Baumann! Return to video list Watch on YouTube
