  • Lodgings I like are the cabins with bathrooms at Curry Camp in Yosemite valley, also the "motel" there. Otherwise Yosemite lodge. Or a heated tent cabin but outside bathroom and shower and no food in the cabins. Some of them and heated. Book through DNC or go to the Yosemite website and theres a link to book.

  • How do they define "JMT" hikes! Summitting Whitney, exiting Whitney (neither of which Yosemite controls), or merely going over Donahue?
