Thanks Ken, Wish you could of maid it! 7 days and 7 nights - Every thing went to plan with a case of Heineken waiting for us in my truck at VVR. Great weather, beautiful scenery and even better group dynamics with a lot of "Chatting" on the JMT with all the fellow hikers. We did not see a person for the first three days being deep in Tehipite Valley. When we finally hit the North Fork Trail at the JMT junction things really got social,interesting and FUN!!! Everybody is just so happy to be out there with a lot of opportunity to create good "Karma". Dave Lutz and Chris Benok were two great guys to hike with on such a remote and inspiring section of the JMT. Here are a few more pictures:
We did not see one other person in this valley for three days!!
On the last day we manage to do 16.8 miles from Salley Keyes Lake to VVR. This was a great time to hike the trail because there was less people and hardly no mosquitoes!! 25 nights out this season so far--I am fortunate and grateful to be able to hike hike with such nice people.
