    This will be my first trip to the sierras….unfortunately I only have 14 days to complete. Not sure I’ll have the luxury of stopping early at a particular site. With this said are there any spots I really should try to make my schedule fit to stop at…so far plan to keep day 1 short and stop at garnet lake other than that I’m open to suggestions…thoughts on my schedule. I’m fine doing 16-18 mpd on southern AT but lil concerned about altitude…plan to bring diamox.

    My schedule due to pita getting a permit out of yosemite looks like this…..
    Wednesday Sept 09 fly into mammoth lakes from the south east.

    Thursday Sept 10 hike north from Devils post pile north to Yosemite (4 days) where I catch the yarts on Sunday evening at 5:30 back to mammoth…same hotel where I will have my re supply till Mtr..

    Monday morning sept 14 on seperate permit head south out of Devils pp to Mtr. (3-3.5 days) After re supply MTR head to Whitney. (6.5-7 days)

    Thx
    Richard
