A Great Resource
- Hi. We're planning our JMT hike for next summer. While doing the
internet search thing, ran across this group. I can see that the
info/experience here will make our trip a lot easier to plan. Thank
you. In return I can offer help on Desolation Wilderness and the Tahoe
Yosemite Trail. I live about an hour from Desolation and go there
several times a year and did the TYT 2 years ago.
One of the issues that we are looking for information on is resupply
in the last half of the JMT for NS hikers. Any
experiences/info/suggestions would be appreciated.
Once again thanks.
- We did the JMT last fall in 30 days, and resupplied at Tuolumne,
Reds Meadow, Muir Ranch and Charlotte Lake. We dropped small
packages off at the first 2 on the way in, and mailed a bucket to
Muir Ranch (~$45 + s/h). A friend hiked in to Muir Ranch with our
fuel, and took out some clothes. Some internet friends brought in
the last cache to Charlotte Lake. We were climbing Split Mtn on
9/11 and didn't hear about it til 3 days later. Our friends still
made the trip, and even brought newspapers to show us what was going
We're planning to do it again next fall, but with different side
trips. We're still planning to stay out for 30 days.
We put our trip photos on http://www.snow-nymph.com
Some thoughts for side trips: Mt Lyell, Banner Peak, McGee Lakes out
of Evolution Valley, Lake South America area....... For those that
have been out there, any ideas?
