Re: [John Muir Trail] if you don't bring a tent: mosquito problem?
- I usually go late (AUG) and usually below 10,000ft so mosquitos have not
been a problem. I do have a Bughut from REI which is just a bug screen.
Only weighs a pound or less. You still need a tarp because it has no
floor. If the buggers love you, you might consider leaving just your rain
fly at home. Again, I would hate for you to take my advice and end up
miserable. I have spent the night with clouds around my face (not in
Yosemite) and that suck to no end.
Good luck I'm sure you will have a great time. The Sierras in the
summer...the best place on earth.
