Hi Bob,
Welcome to HST! 👍


Professional Sierra Landscape Photographer

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

Very useful site for trip planning and backpacking expertise! Many thanks to all who supply info, and those who manage and provide this platform.

As for me, try to get in a handful of short trips each year, plus some day hikes. Live/work Reno/Truckee, but prefer to hike the High Sierra down south, and the scenery just below tree line. Landscape photo hobbyist with Images on Flickr . . .
