    Thanks for posting that wh.

    Did a somewhat similar route one August long weekend, but headed over to Upper Callaghan Lake and going over Callaghan before dropping to Ring Lake and traversing across Powder Mtn to Brandywine. Spent the night in a lightning storm bivied just below the peak of Callaghan. Crevasses were small but unavoidable heading towards Powder. With a 4yo our hiking is limited to how far I can carry her on the kid-carrier, but in a couple years I'll have her carrying the heavy gear for me.
    Soccer is a game of feet. Hockey is a game of inches.

      Agree with Tele 'til you're Smelly that it's nice to have one forum where everything new is easily found. Believe moving stuff later on so it can be found easier by category, or sub-forum is the best practice.

      Nice photos. Makes me jealous.

        I think as this matures and you find your legs, you could develop a Sticky that explains TR rules in the General Forum and perhaps a general Rules sticky.
        All in due time.

          OK, I'll play. I just finished my third week-long backpack of the year, so I'm a little behind in the photo dept.

          Here are some pix from #1. Entry was over McGee Pass, we traveled over Gabbot Pass (no trail to speak of), Pine Creek Pass, two trailless and unnamed passes and exited via Paiute Pass to our car stashed at North Lake. Lots of clouds, some rain. Good times.

            Here are a few from trip #3. Yeah, the trips are out of order, but so is my summer. This one was with my brother and nephew. It was a 6-day in-and-out to Pioneer Basin through Mono Pass from the east side of the Sierra.

                    Went north (solo) to look for caribou, and glance at Canada last weekend near Walcutt Mt on the Taylor Highway. Pretty mellow but the vastness...... Here's a few pics.

                    Next for Tabitha and I looks interesting.... Oct/Nov to Everest Base Camp/Kala Patar from Jiri along the trad route to celebrate the 60th anniversary of 1st ascent.

                      Mountain House freeze dried bag meals are light and tasty, bivy bag beats tent when no rain is in the forecast, love rolling over in bag and lighting stove for morning coffee.

                          Nice! I've only done one overnight trip there, but it was quite memorable. What a nice place.

                              If you insist on eating your boots, I recommend just chopping them up and slow cooking them in your Dutch Oven. More tender that way.

                              Oh, great pictures all, especially VT.
