Hello all. I'm new to this forum, although I've been reading it for a while, I just joined in.
Anyways, I live in Vermont and will be heading out to Portland, OR for a wedding. Prior to heading out to a 5 week backpacking trip in Armenia (I'll post more later) I'm tacking on about 10 days to do something out west.
June 27 - July 6
I know everywhere out there has a big snowpack, so whatever I do I (and my partner) plan to bring the appropriate gear for lots of snow travel. Anyways, I've narrowed my choices down to:
Wonderland Trail around Mt. Rainier
Finish the Sierra High Route
Last year I did about 70% of the High Route, so I basically plan on finishing what I skipped, specifically from Red's Meadow/Mammoth - Piute River/Piute Pass and continuing on to Bishop Pass, even though I did that last year.
Any advice or suggestions much appreciated!
