I wanted to thank everyone who was concerned and helped the effort to locate my wife LaVonne. She was a couple of days lare at the Onion Valley trailhead on a south to north JMT trek. She had to duct tape together her new ultra-light backpack most of the trip as the bottom seams failed.
She is now backpack shopping and I sent her a Garmin Inreach to improve our communications.
Thanks to all. I would address everyone individually but the original message thread was deleted, likely to not cause confusion after she was found.
