Nice trip- didn't see too many people for being on a trail most of the time. I know there are alot of pics here, I didn't do so great on the sorting process.....

Terrific pictures! I've wondered whether that spectacular dome thing on the way up to Forester had a name, too. Did anyone else pick up on that question?

Awesome trip! Loved the "Barnard" section. Almost like I walked thru there with you. It rained as we hiked to it. That's when we saw the tornado! I remember the bushwacking to get to the campsite. And that tall grass John is walking thru. That was on of my favorite trips! Thanks for photographing the register entry! I wondered if it would be there. Can't wait to get to the Sierra again! 24 hours!

Nice photos. They elicit fond memories of that area (haven't been in Onion Valley/University area since the 80's and the Shepherd-Cottonwood corridor since 1996). I'm sorry to see that they took down the magnificent original register on Barnard (as of 1996 only about 60% full and dating back to first placing in 1936) and did not replace it. This loss of summit register thing is very sad. Anyhow, it's great to see those gorgeous photos.

I already told you how much I like those pics. But, like you, I expected to see more people when we were on that section of the PCT.

I have fond memories of Chicken Spring Lake...I was camping with some of my gear and all my food missing!

Sooz, Thank you for sharing your wonderful pictures! I enjoyed so much looking at them. What a great trip that must have been. Very sad about that sign George Durkee had to post to the tree...he should not have had to do that :(
