Adam, you want to meet up at Maraposa trail head also? I think for the 1st night this will be the best plan, then Sat. we can re-evaluate the weather for Sat., Sun.
Looks like high 30's-low 40's daytime, night looks like mid to high 20's, I'll keep an eye on the weather. I will bring 2 tarps 1 8x10 and 1 5x7 to set up so we can cook, eat, and visit under if it's snowing. If you can, bring hiking poles to help set the tarps up. If we're up there the whole weekend, maybe we can build an Igloo, Marc started one on a hike we did last year, I helped a little until our group continued hiking, it was pretty cool! If you have a snow shovel bring it, I have 2, or more like 1 1/2 one is a real hiking snow shovel, The other is one a freind gave me that looks like someone made, light and small, just not a lot of surface area, I'll bring both. Can't wait, this should be an exciting trip.
