RE: Re: Oct anyone doing the JMT
I did this hike in 2012 and bypassed Whitney.(turned left because of thunder storms approaching from the south). The nice thing about this route is you can plan your first nights to match up with bear boxes. I left Crescent Meadows with 10 days food and needed the bear boxes for the food that didn't fit into my canister.(night 1 bear paw meadow, night 2 -Chagoopa Trail Fork, night 3- kern hot springs, day 4 -tyndall creek.) From Tyndall creek I was good with the canister storage.

When you did the HST to the JMT, did you just turn left when you hit the
JMT from Wright creek, or did you go to Whitney and do a U-turn? I am
thinking of doing that hike next year or two, and would forgo the
Whitney scene. Would be a long trip between resupplies if you are
resupplying at Muir Ranch, how did you handle that?
The May trip must have been spectacular, with snow at Precipice Lake?
