      Hello folks, I'm a new member. It looks like this group is a great resource..

      I had an amazing time needless to say. There was a stretch of rain for much of the trip, so there's a gap in my pics since my solar charger was out of action, but no complaints it wasn't too bad. I was chased off of Whitney with an incoming storm, which I barely missed.

      Met some great people on the trail, which balanced out the solitude time that I was looking for. Had some friends resupply me over Kearsage and join me up the final 3 days up to Whitney.

      Great times. Thought I'd share my pics- all were with my trusty iphone.

      Great pics, thanks for sharing. Looks like you got some weather. Did you wear those sandals all the way? Barbara Typos by iPhone.

            yup sure did. I always backpack in slippers- I use it because it's light, comfortable and agile- it makes stream crossings a non issue. There are obvious drawbacks- clipping the occassional rock, doesn't work in snow. I plan my trips accordingly. There was snow in the passes, but with trekking poles, it wasn't an issue when I went, but it wouldn't have worked a couple months earlier.

            It was my longest trip with just slippers- probably too long in retrospect. Next time I'll switch out to some trail runners every few days to let the scuffs recover, and the long talus sections.

                Really like the pictures of Bighorn Plateau. I ve only been through there in rain or very gray skies. The blue sky with the low clouds looked awesome. Claire
