1864Re: Getting to and from the trail
- Mar 4, 2008Hi Paul,
I was not the one who asked this transportation question, but one who
is interested in the answer. I checked out all the links and called a
couple of the services. It seems there hasn't been much activity on
the JMT Yahoo group lately, so will post this.
Here are my comments:
Earliest bus from Lone Pine to Bishop leaves at 6:30AM and arrives at
7:40AM. The bus out of Bishop leaves at 7:00AM so the connection

8:20, 8:23 and 8:30AM. I called CREST to see if this is timed so
people arriving at 8:25 could make the transfer in time. The employee

Anyway, this is where I am at, if anyone has further insight. I
haven't made any flight reservations yet, hoping that something
firmer will develop, or more time will have to be allowed for getting
Also, no one has been able (or willing) to answer my fish question
yet, as to what kind of fish they were, or the possible location. If
the table was turned, and I knew about it, I would be reluctant to
pass the info on also. It is possible that things have changed since
35 years ago and this kind of fish encounter no longer exists on the
