    You can have packers bring in a resupply (if you can afford it) or you can head out to the Onion Valley trailhead above Independence Info here:

        Man, that 12 mile hike over Bishop Pass and back is a two-day trip. Not easy either. Perhaps the easier Kearsarge Pass trail to Onion Valley would be better.

Only 7.5 miles and no huge altitude gain/loss. That would put you within three days of Whitney Portal. We might stash a bear can at the trailhead and walk out to resupply on the way south.

            Do we absolutely need resupply?

              Emily:

               

              Remember from last year Ranger George Durkee from Charlotte Lake said (personally told me) he will confiscate your food if it is anywhere except in his bear box (by his cabin) and delivered by reputable packers (Berner’s) who will pack out the garbage.  George will give you a day or so for stuff at the lake Bear box but he is really tired of having to clean up left behind food and garbage from the bear boxes in his district.  The Berner lady (Dana?) will give you a better price if you set up your delivery early (I always do mine in May for July trip) and if you are flexible a bit on time so she can send/bring your stuff in with others.

                You are good if you can meet them on the trail but by the time I get that far down the trail from Yosemite I am usually +/- one day on my schedule and would have missed them on the trail.  Besides the price is sometimes cheaper if they can bundle you with somebody else for a delivery to the Charlotte lake RS bear box.

                        There is no public transportation. Private shuttle services are an option.  Hitch hiking in the area is easy though--I've managed it and I don't look that good.  Once you get to Bishop there is bus service heading north and south from there.  Mammoth is north of Bishop. Resupply at Parchers for a JMT hike is awkward if you look at the miles.  And it is about a 24 mile round trip off the trail albeit a great area up through Dusy Basin and over Bishop Pass.  Parchers does offer discounted overnight hiker accommodations, resupply services (they'll hold your package), a restaurant, showers etc. Here's a link to their hiker services:  http://parchersresort.net/Backpackerservice.htm
