FORECAST 14-MAY-09

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.

THURSDAY, 14-MAY-09, MORNING REPORT

A FEW MORE DAYS OF NEAR SEASONAL TEMPERATURES THEN A WARM UP BEGINS STARTING ON SATURDAY AND SUNDAY.
