As usual with this type of hike I will be picky who to add

There will be questions popping up when you rsvp, (add to waitlist) make sure to answer them

I will limit the group to around 15

** You should have done similar hikes,

**7:15am (meeting time) means you have to leave Bay Area around 3am (or earlier depending where you live) Driving out and back the same day is not recommended, it would be a long day, ***

***You can look for a campsite and stay the night before / after ***

***I will camp after the hike in the valley***

*** you have to make your own camp accomodations, that means look for cancellations, or camp outside the park.** once you are added to the hike*

We meet at the sunrise lakes trailhead, and catch the free shuttle bus around[masked]am, to the cathedra lakes trailhead.

Route:

JMT(john muir trail) for 3 miles, then a short side trip to the lower lake, back to JMT to sunrise camp, where we leave the JMT and head over to the sunrise lakes (maybe a quick swim, will see) and coninue to tenaya lake, where the cars are parked.

Important:

this is not a beginner hike

Make sure to bring plenty of water, around 3 liters I would say

bring some food, snacks

sunscreen, (maybe a hat)

dress in layers

cheap rain poncho (around a dollar at target and other places), they are small and fit easy in your pack,

bug spray, (hopefully mosquito season will be near the end, but who knows)

and all the other stuff you usually bring on this type of hike,
