I am heading out of Horseshoe Meadows in the morning, hoping to cross Crabtree Pass on Sunday. Weather forecast is for sunny and clear weather. I think I hit that right. smile

Depending on how my bones hold up, I'll either encircle Whitney, or return to Horseshoe Meadows.

Weather forecast for this weekend looks like it will be great.

Looks like I'll miss you by a few hours - I'm heading up with my wife tomorrow for her first backpacking trip up to cottonwood lakes. Going to stay at one of the trail head walk in sites on Friday night and then up to the lakes on Saturday.

Weather: Yes! Looking forward to this cloudy with afternoon t-storms pattern clearing out.

Sorry we'll miss each other, psykoK.

Looks like Steve hit the Portal about 1:30pm yesterday. Hopefully he'll be home soon to clean up WZ (and also to post a trip report).

Deleted the spammer. Will designate some moderators soon.

I'm taking a bus out of Lone Pine Thursday. Car is behind fire closed road to Horseshoe Meadow.

psyko: No vacation goes unpunished. I have so many crazy things going on that I can't find the time! (leaky pipes to fix, etc, etc.) I found out yesterday that I lost 5 lbs in 5 days due to the AMS loss of appetite. I'll eventually post pictures and a report. At least I have downloaded my pics to my computer. Still need to do the same with the Spot track.

In a word, the hike was... Grueling!

No trip report yet, but at least I grabbed my Spot track before it expired. Here it is on a gmap4 map:

gpx version             kml version

I need to clean it up some -- not sure why there are gaps on the gpx track.
