The other day I actually read your full website trip article but watched only a couple minutes of the video as that is about 45 minutes long. Have been to all the destinations you visited but not always via the same routes. At least vaguely recognized locales of most of the images.
As someone that also does this kind of thing, both of us are aware of how long and how much effort it takes to create web pages like yours. Some of my own web page trip articles with images are rather long. A decade or three from now you will greatly appreciate having taken time to do so as it will help recall much that would otherwise be lost. An issue is having to load single pages with lots of images may take a long time and depending on browser settings can disrupt just reading text sections. Your article has maybe a couple hundred jpg's all on the same one page. A strategy is to break up an article into multiple pages say on date boundaries that will then individually load quicker.
You covered a lot of miles and that always tends to cut down on the time one can experience what they are passing through and may miss a fair amount of worthwhile elements. There are places you went through that I've base camped at spending several fascinating days exploring. And now that you have ventured through numbers of these High Sierra places, no doubt some of those places you may in the future return to and spend more time at while others not.
Was rather puzzled why you seemed to have trouble catching trout in some of the places you visited where I know from experience they are abundant. The lures you mentioned as long as they were not gaudy should have had better luck. Next time bring a few small Kastmasters and a few #16 Adams dry flies with a clear float. You mentioned all the fish cooking gear you might have brought that you own and use in Michigan. Did you cook and eat the 3 fish you did catch?
What camera were you using? Did you use a tripod?
The read of your pain in the Goethe Cirque had me smiling. Was the most tedious and dangerous talus slog I ever went through too. Long ago before you were born as a young man, I passed on the east side of the lake and purposely took a route through what I'd heard were the most gigantic blocks that I though would be a fun challenge and worth some bragging about. But regretted that haha as it was rather humbling teaching me a lesson.
There is a good thread on HST about finding the correct route down Carol Col. This last week I did some summer 2017 trip planning for a 9-day group trip over Piute Pass into Humphreys Basin that I last visited in the 80s. Given there will be some fishermen along, We will spend 3 of the days base camping on the French Canyon Bench.
You were impressed with Granite Park. This summer of 2016 I did a 9-day trip into GP, then over Royce Pass, and then to L-Lake. I camped right at the top of Royce Pass in the big talus you had to pass by. Then your GP camp spot was right across the stream from where I camped at a couple days. That pond you captured a very nice image of Treasure Peak of is the same one on my report. Yours looks nicer with more rocks showing than when I worked it earlier in summer.http://www.davidsenesac.com/2016_Trip_C ... 16-13.html
Lake side camp spots around Vee Lake are indeed rather exposed thus mediocre. But if one hunts about in the surrounding zone there are some superb little secrets. Amused all those brook trout still congregate where the little stream flows into Marie Lake. Quite a sight. I caught golden, rainbows, and brook all over 12 inches there one day.
