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.
Try not to resist the changes that come your way. Instead, let life live through you. And do not worry that your life is turning upside down. How do you know that the side you are used to is better than the one to come?

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...

Just finished up my better shots from the trip.

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.
