Made while trekking for a month through the Sierra Nevada on a Sierra Club High Trip, these photos, and nineteen more, were self published in 1929 in an edition of 25, titled: Sierra Club Outing, 1929. The prints are gelatin silver “Parmelian” prints on thin, translucent, cream colored Kodak Vitava Athena Parchment T paper. The annual Sierra Club outings began in 1901.
“The Ansel Adams Wilderness is dotted with sparkling lakes, glacially sculpted gorges, and imposing peaks. Originally protected as wilderness by the 1964 Wilderness Act, it was first called the Minarets Wilderness. Renamed to honor Ansel Adams in 1984, it spreads over 230,258 acres, ranging in altitude from about 7,000 feet to 14,000 feet.”
