    We are great fans of your site and want to thank you for helping us prepare for our JMT hike this summer! You’ve helped us feel confident that at 62 and 66 we can not only negotiate the trail but thoroughly enjoy ourselves along the way! I’ll be noting this info on our maps…

    Thanks for the posting. I will be starting August 1 with my wife and 10 and 12 year old daughters. This will definitely help.

    Great info. In 2013 did 87.6 miles from Happy Valley to VVR. There was a 10-mile section before Virginia lake, the trail goes thru a pumuce area to a hight of about 10,000 ft. with no water until you dissented to a creek. Is that the brown section , in your map, from Reds to VVR?
    I’m preparing to start my second attempt from Lyell Canyon to Mt. Whitney, August 12, 2015. Your blog is good resource.

    Thank you.
