Thanks. Much appreciated. I am thinking of hiking a full loop over Silliman and around JO Passes.

Trip is ready
Thursday afternoon driving up to Shady Rest CG from LA
Friday: Early shuttle to Devil's Postpile and hike to Rosalie Lake
Saturday: Hike to Ediza Lake
Sunday: Hike to 1000 Isles
Monday: Hike out and drive back to LA

Possible alternative is
1) Rosalie via Ediza and back to camp at Garnet Lake or just straight to Garnet
2) Camp near Badger Lake area to shorten the trip out

Any last minute trail guidance welcome.

In meantime working on getting my pack down. Base weight somehow popping around 20 lbs, plus food/bear can another 10, plus water. I am now nearing 37-38. This despite having dropped ~5-6 lbs off my original base weight w new tent, WM bag, lighter/less gear....
