My kids are really keen on visiting the hot springs - it was the main reason they wanted to choose this hike (Duck Pass to Fish Creek to Devils Postpile) for their first longer (5 day) trip.

I think we'll have to do the HST next year...

Here's my list of "hopefully" trips:

Solo or with other adults:
4/16-18: Whitney MR.
6/26-7/1: White Mtn. to Whitney via pedal, paddle, & foot.
7/5-11: Langley, Muir, Whitney, Russell, Tyndall, & Williamson

Family trip with wife, 9 year old daughter & 7 year old son:
2 weeks early August: Virginia Lake Resort to Mammoth via Tuolumne, Red's Meadow, Iva Bell springs, somewhere, out probably Duck Pass. Resupply at Tuolumne and Red's so we don't have to carry more than 4-5 nights' food.

A good early season trip is Edith (Edyth) Lake, and maybe Bearup while you're at it. If you want to stick to trails: Jack Main Canyon. Be sure to stop by (and fish) Laurel Lake.

anyone else sign on to this plan yet?

I'd do it if I lived out there, but I'll be on the interstate for a few days starting 6/25 to get to the mountains for the summer.

I have this 10-year-plan to convince my boss that I can telecommute from anywhere and do my work just fine, even from Owens Vally, CA. Once the kids are in college, I may even pull this off and move out there. I'll live in a van down by the river as long as it has a fast internet connection, so that I can go play more than just a few vacation weeks of the summer

She got the job. No vacation time for the first 6 months.

No big trips until September. Just local weekends for us this summer. :crybaby:
Log off and get outdoors!
