2020 HST Meetup 9/11-9/13

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 always found the shot to be not at sunrise, but immediately after sunrise and shooting away from the sun. Situate the camera at the Upper Young Lake and point toward Ragged Peak. Shoot about one or two minutes after the sun shines on the top of the peak.
Does this mean that you will be coming, and show us this special spot of yours Bobby? :nod:

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.

That isn't a good date for me. That is when I do laundry.

Count me in!

If things go as I'd like them to go, I'll have been in the Sierra for 4 or 5 weeks by the time of this meetup. Expect a smelly hiker! Maybe I could even bribe one of you to bring me fresh veggies and fruits :-)

Great Grampy, the more members, newer or older, the more special it will be! :thumbsup:

So much truth to that statement. So many forums that I once belonged to decided that there fishing/hunting/camping/hiking information was too valuable or fragile to share with new members or lurkers. And I do understand that thinking. The problem with closed sites is that there is always going to be a certain amount of attrition. Without new blood such sites are domed to fad away.

I like the idea of having a meetup after Labor Day and will definitely try to attend despite the negatives of the TM campground.

Another newbie (at least as a poster to HST) interested, if there is still room. Definitely interested in the photo opportunities of this location, lusting to get more familiar with my shiny new Canon 80D and WA lens without having to lug it into the backcountry. Moon schedule shows moving toward new moon on 17 September, so should have some good dark sky for Milky Way shots.
