2014 Member Meet-up 7/22-7/27

A forum to initiate member meet-up. Looking for a hiking/climbing/fishing/skiing/etc. partner, or are you planning a trip where you wouldn't mind having some company? Last minute invites can be just as fun as a well-planned group trip (sometimes even better) so don't be shy! And be sure to post a trip report to the appropriate forum when you get back.

Nice shots. And, it was good to meet you even though you could only stay for a short while.

Yes, "3 Bay lake" - I can see on my 7.5m map that it's a little below the lake we were looking at on your T Harrison map. West-siders could come in via Harrison, Lucy's or Milly's, whereas it would be a straight shot up Shepherd & across Tyndall from the east side.


Foaming, drooling, and just flat out intrigued!!!!

Glad everyone had a great trip. Hope to join everyone next year along with my son and daughter. Thanks to everyone for all the great photos!!!

Umm, I do not foam or drool. :)

Glad you all had a nice meet-up!

Did anyone see Mav cook a meal? :unibrow: just wondering. I like communal kitchen pics when groups get together.

Here's another one. Alpenglow on Whitney and Russell, but all lenses are trained on the distant Kaweahs.

I had to cut my trip short and missed the meetup, but I was watching the alpenglow on Whitney from the Kaweahs a few days earlier.

Nice reports! Bummed to have not been able to make this trip work out due to conflicting work scheduling/other travel. Hopefully next year...

Great shots Jim, ready to go back right now. Wales was really nice, and that sunset
in upper Wrights was like a Picasso sketching in the sky.
I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.
