Re: Re: Five Days in Yosemite in October
You're right about the Sawtooths Bill, we went in Twin Lakes and came out Buckeye. The burger is indeed from Jolly Kone, which is probably my favorite post-hike meal. They're like In-N-...

Five Days in Yosemite in October
55 miles, about half of it off trail in places I'd never expect anybody else to go. Climbed five domes nobody has ever heard of and walked ten miles up a trailless canyon hardly anyone has seen...

Re: Love to join
Scott, hope you guys can make it. Border collies are welcome as far as I'm concerned. I'm probably driving up Friday night with a bunch of people, but as mentioned above we haven't figu...

Re: One last Sierra trip before the winter: Iceland Lake, Emigrant Wilderness, October 25-26th
Hi everyone, I just got back from an awesome 5-day trip in Yosemite. Sorry for the slow response to everyone's PMs. I drove back via Highway 108 and it's gorgeous up there right now. The...
