Great trip report @nightowl. Your photographs are excellent. Do you have an album with more photos (on Flickr, or somewhere like that)? I'd love to see more of your pics.

Then on Day Six I exited out over Cottonwood Pass to Horseshoe Meadow. Back in early July, the streams were flowing dangerously high and fast, but by August they were normal. As far as the Whitney summit went, that was Year 41 for me.
Oh nice! Luckily the stream crossings were all manageable for us being the end of September, but I can imagine they are are a lot more challenging earlier in the season!
