Hello everyone. Hoping to get some info about the JMT in September for my maiden voyage. My brother and I are leaving Tuolumne Meadows on 9/6 and planning on three days to Reds Meadow. I'll be continuing solo from RM on 9/9 and exiting through Kearsarge Pass on 9/17. I was hoping that anyone with experience might offer up some words of wisdom & advice about the trail in late summer, along with recommendations on great camp sites, must-see spots, photo-ops, etc. I'll be bringing a good quality compact camera and want to put it to good use. I've been reading anything I can find -- books, blogs, websites (BPL is hands-down the best so far), and have watched a fair number of You Tube videos (some great, some not so much), so I have a basic understanding of the trail. But, most of these revolve around early to mid-summer hikes. After RM, I'll be resupplying once (probably MTR). The itinerary from RM south is pretty wide open at this point, trying to average 15 mile days, and would absolutely welcome any hiking partners on this leg.
Thanks in advance for any and all responses.
