Water too high on Kern River to leave from Kennedy Meadows campground so went to Fish Creek.

From Fish Creek took southern trail - got off trail and ended up on Jackass trail - then on to Broder Meadow. Some snow in trees and lots of water - beautiful area - good camp at Broder Meadow

Saturday climbed Monache Peak. Fairly good views of Olancha Peak and Monache Meadows. Sunday on way out climbed Jackass Peak - came out Jackass trail. Good spring trip.
