Re: Emigrant Wilderness With Light Packs - Group BPL Trip
Great pics everybody. Adam, that one of the sunrise with lupine in the foreground is desktop wallpaper worthy - got a higher res version posted somewhere? Justin, it's very unusual for it to...

Re: Humphreys Basin - food/bear strategies
Humphreys Basin sees a huge amount of human traffic, so even though it's up high the bears know they can find food there. I would recommend a canister.

David, we missed you too! It's probably a good thing you rested up if you weren't feeling well, it turned out to be a pretty strenuous hike.

Re: Emigrant Wilderness SUL Trip - July 13-14
Yeah, you guys figured it out. We are camping at either High Emigrant or Emigrant Meadow Lakes, not Emigrant Lake. Eric, your Hillmap gets it right except I don't think there's any reason t...

Re: Emigrant Wilderness SUL Trip - July 13-14
Kevin, where did you get those mileages? The 25 miles I quoted is what I got from drawing a reasonably accurate path with Hillmap. I think 14 of that was from Sonora Pass to Emigrant Meadow Lake. K...

The Ohm is my go-to pack for trips that don't require a bear can. You can fit a Bearikade in it, but it's not very comfortable because it bulges into your back. I put a plastic frame sheet fro...
