WEATHER FORECAST 10/16/07

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

Thanks, Dennis!

Snowman, do you have a recent photo of the Mammoth area? (looking towards Bloody Mtn? Glass Mtn?)
