      This giant 3 map set covers the whole JMT and all side-trails and more.  I believe the entire High Sierra Trail is mapped on it too.  Awesome map.  I use it for planning but I resort to carrying  only the JMT Tom Harrison Map Pack on the trail along with a printout of the Elizabeth Wenk Spreadsheet (on legal paper, duplex, landscape -- with my desired columns and highlighted rows for end-of-day goals).

      Is this 3 map pack for the whole JMT or just the MUIR WILDERNESS & SEQUOIA/KINGS CANYON WILDERNESS Sections??

      Thanks for the info!
