There is a remote and picturesque basin on the west side of Sequoia National Park. At the terminus is a large lake with waters so deep and blue you will think you are staring up at the heavens.

The trek up Miter Basin begins at Rock Creek Meadow, nine miles from the nearest trailhead. Those making the hike typically stay overnight in the area, and nearby Lower Soldier Lake offers great camping for backpackers. From Horseshoe Meadow in the Golden Trout Wilderness, one may get to this backcountry basin via two different trails, crossing into Sequoia over either Cottonwood Pass orNew Army Pass to reach Lower Soldier Lake.
