I swear I remember seeing someone on a cell phone at the Agnew trailhead. Fwiw, I know there's reception at Red's Meadow Pack Station.

I, for one, hope there is no cell phone coverage there.

Dave, while i share your sentiment, i would rather keep my family updated via txt message if that's possible. I love my wife and son and don't want them worry.

Yuri. I'm sure we totally agree. I'm anti-cell phone reception in wilderness, whilst pro-contact with wives when hiking! (That's why we get to do what we do!)

i just got back and while i had some signal the txt message i've sent didnt make it to the family ...So really, there is no signal to be frank, even if the cell phone claims otherwise
