This is awesome! I was in Humphries a week before and got hit by those monsoon storms for five days straight. We headed the other direction but I can't wait to check out Carol and Puppet. Thanks for the preview!

Not always a tent, but at least a bivy and tarp/pancho. I like a light pack, but dislike sleeping wet and cold even more!!! Again, thanks for the TR and pics!!!
We were planning on only bringing tarps and bivys, but we knew the weather was about to take a turn so we grabbed the tents. Also, youre right, mt humphreys in alpenglow is AWESOME!!
Dave, he is retarded. I keep telling him to bend his barbs and he just doesnt. I think its too funny that he caught his chin!

Yah the monsoons the week before were prettty intese, i was up in mammoth the week before and had to deal with it while camping at Convict. Carol and puppet are the same, but it is a really fun pass!

I agree, i felt like everywhere we went there were more lakes. My biggest pet peeve when i normally go backpacking is just staying in one place. This trip we made it a point to check out as much as possible. I only wish that we could have checked out more of Glacier Divide.
