Thanks, will do. Working on reporting trail/mosquito conditions, although they're a week old now.

Day 1
Shuttling to and inside the park, as well as the heat, slowed us down a bit, but we had a good day. We had originally planned to hike fewer miles on Day 1, but most of campsite before Bearpaw were taken. Clicking on an image below will bring you to a webpage with a detailed trip report and more photos.

Day 1 highlights of our High Sierra Trail trek to Mt. Whitney:

After hours of planning, we're excited to finally hit the trail.
