2014 Member Meet-up 7/22-7/27

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.

Umm, I do not foam or drool. :)

Glad you all had a nice meet-up!

Did anyone see Mav cook a meal? :unibrow: just wondering. I like communal kitchen pics when groups get together.

Here's another one. Alpenglow on Whitney and Russell, but all lenses are trained on the distant Kaweahs.

I had to cut my trip short and missed the meetup, but I was watching the alpenglow on Whitney from the Kaweahs a few days earlier.

Nice reports! Bummed to have not been able to make this trip work out due to conflicting work scheduling/other travel. Hopefully next year...

Great shots Jim, ready to go back right now. Wales was really nice, and that sunset
in upper Wrights was like a Picasso sketching in the sky.

Wow. Your very last shot even made the lunar moonscape heading to Shepherd look semi-inviting. Both times I traversed it @ noon, a cold wind was blowing like a forlorn desert winter gale.

Mav: Milestone next year? Andy can show us how to get over the pass to Kaweah. I might even be able to talk Tom K into making a guest appearance. He has a very high regard for BW.

Hobbes, I have a panorama of that, but I haven't gotten to the panos yet. I'm going to French canyon for a week starting Monday morning, so it will have to wait.
Gotta try out my new EF-S 17-85mm f/4-5.6 IS USM and get another try at the Milky Way. My current lens has no focal length scale, so it was peg it, back it off a bit and pray. Hit and miss, strike one.

Just an aside, the series of lakes in lower Milestone Basin had no sign of other people. . but there were a lot of large fish in this lake:
