sept hike from florence lake to whitney questions

Post by eclipsesf » Mon Jun 19, 2006 2:28 pm

Even if it maims me, i am going to finish the JMT finally. It's only been 3 years of piecemeal hiking. Couple of questions.
I'm training to fresno and getting a ride to florence lake - any place to get my permit along that route? How many days might i expect to do the 100 miles - I'm in mediocre shape but am a good plodder. Also, anyone want to join me for some or all? I'm hoping to not have to carry all that weight solo. thanks,
steve

Try this link. I have picked up permits for this area in Clovis and Prather.

State your dates and timeline. Who knows what will come out of the woodwork?

thanks for the help. found 2 good options for permits in clovis and prather. leaving first week in september. I'm hoping 12 miles a day is a realistic pace.
