Maverick's 2016 Annual HST Meet-up

A forum to initiate member meet-up. Looking for a hiking/climbing/fishing/skiing/etc. partner, or are you planning a trip where you wouldn't mind having some company? Last minute invites can be just as fun as a well-planned group trip (sometimes even better) so don't be shy! And be sure to post a trip report to the appropriate forum when you get back.

I skipped Frozen Lake this time and took the Cataract/Amphitheater/Dumbell/Lakes/Cartridge route. Lakes Basin was among my favorites; real nice mix of creeks, waterfalls, lakes and big scenery. I rushed through it a few years ago but had time to really enjoy it this time around.

This is the view into Lakes Basin from Dumbell Lakes Pass, Marion visible on the right, but I liked the big lakes to the left.

That sounds like an excellent plan! I'm bringing my Tenkara next time.

Thanks for everyone's well wishes. I'm recovering well at home and expect to attend next year's meetup. My wife may insist that I travel with someone though...

Andy, I guess this explains why you aren't wearing your signature clean white shirt. :)
Outstanding photos btw!
