731Re: JMT - Aug 2005 - N to S - 21 day trip
- Dec 9, 2004My then 10 year old son and I did it N-S in 1982. We took 23 hiking
days and 2 layover days. Our average hiking rate was a bit over 9
miles per day and the longest was around 13 miles. We resupplied at
Red's Mdw. and because my friend dropped out there he brought us a
resupply at Vidette Mdw. He had intended to finish with us from there
but his knee was still bothering him. Had he not dropped out we would
have had only the one resupply. We did about the same distance every
day with some variation. Nights were spent at:
Cloud's Rest turnoff
Middle Tuolumne Mdw
The lake after Shadow Lk
Creek befor Purple Lk.
Bear Creek crossing
Upper Palisaid Lk.
Woods Ck. Crossing
South side of Forester Pass
