Devil's Postpile to Tuolumne Meadow via SHR

Hi HST forum,

New guy here(still classified as a lurker) and was drawn here by research on the SHR.For those of you that may be interested, has some good links/info regarding the SHR.

A friend and I are planning to travel from Devil's Postpile to Tuolumne Mdws via the SHR the first week of September. We plan on 5 trail days with Labor Day as a possible "extra" day if needed. I'll be pinging the group for trail conditions/advice as our departure day nears.

I'm primarily interested in photography(my friend wants to fish) and i'm still trying to pare down my camera kit to a manageable weight. A little hard to do when taking the full size tripod/DSLR/lenses.

As an aside -- how long does it take to gain the necessary permission to view pictures embedded in other member's posts?

HST is a very cool site for all things Sierra. I'll be sure to pass the web address along.

From what I've heard, the SHR often takes you over routes that are harder than necessary for historical reasons. So, from Mineret Lake to Cecile, you can avoid the chimney by taking the use trail to the right.

Also, note that White Bark Pine Pass above Nydiver (I think it's called) is a chute of loose talus on the north side. Take your time!
