Maverick's 2016 Annual HST Meet-up | High Sierra Topix  

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.

Thursday and Friday are the days to mingle, some folks may arrive earlier as Gazelle and possibly our group too, most may show up on Thursday, but let's wait and see what people say about it.

I'm planning to attend, assuming nothing explodes at my work that week. I'll be coming from the Isberg trailhead; entering via Isberg Pass, and leaving via Blue Lake Pass. I'm planning to arrive at the meetup spot Thursday afternoon, hangout on Friday, and leave Saturday morning. The mileage from this route looks fairly reasonable. . .via Isberg Pass: 20 miles, +6180', -3200'. Return via Blue Lake Pass: 14.5 miles, +2777', -5614'.

I plan on arriving Wednesday afternoon, Thursday hike some peaks, go out Friday morning while getting forester and Ansel Adams peaks then to twin lakes or there abouts maybe further but who knows then all the way out via San Joaquin, two teats ridge back to car. Oh course that is if all goes as planned which almost never happens to me!

I'm planning on reaching the meet-up location Thursday in the early afternoon. Perhaps I will run into Gazelle as she descends one of the local peaks like last year. I will be coming over north Glacier along the SHR from Mammoth. Depending on luck & timing, maybe I'll see Maverick/Oleander Wed on their way to Old Bones while I head to Bench canyon/Blue lake.

I'm going to check out the local streams/lakes for fishing, then take-off Friday morning for Tuolumne meadows via Vogelsang HSC. Catch YARTS back to Mammoth and head home.

I will be coming and bring one friend from Mono Meadows.

The tour bus to get us from the valley to Mono Meadows is sold out. I should have thought of buying tickets early. Any suggestions?
Also, will parking in the valley trailhead be impossible on a Sunday morning when we start the shuttle?
