Re: Bench Lake via Taboose Pass-KCNP 6/9-12
Great pics Tom. I hope to hike as much as you do when I'm your age. I've been past the Bench Lake turnoff a bunch of times, but have never made the side trip. I'm planning on fixing tha...

Re: Thanks!
"One of the primary reasons I love hanging is because of the flexibility it gives me to set up camp anywhere..." You'll find a tarp will let you do that in the Sierra. There's ...

Re: How light can I reasonably get in a solo shelter?
