Spent Sunday night just before Piute Pass and the next day hanging out in Humphrey's basin. Great weather

Sunset on Humphreys

Night spent at Piute Creek and the JMT

Dinner at MTR

Only place I took off my boots on entire trip as far as staying dry was concerned

Evolution Lake and beyond

Yours truly at the top of the pass

My last nights campsite

Looking back down from Bishop Pass at what I had hiked up

This sign meant the car was near. Great time going over lots of areas I had never seen.

Hey Hillbasher,

Also, where do you rent them? Nothing here in LA.

Thanks for your suggestion!
Well REI Arcadia and the one in Tustin both rent them but if you can get them in Bishop for $12 a day, that sounds like your best deal.

If you don't own any, rent some snowshoes. You will make it then, as all you are doing is walking up a road.

  Loved your trip report, both as someone that owns a few Kelty packs, and someone that believes Little Lakes Valley is one of the best "bang for your buck" areas in the Sierras. I have skied into Treasure Lakes, located above Long Lake, in the deep of winter, and have tied an inflated float tube onto my pack and hauled it into LL at the outset of summer. Have climbed Mt Dade, Pyramid Peak, and Mt Morgan, all of which kicked my butt by the end of the day, but were well worth the effort.
  Found your meeting a Kelty family member interesting, as I have 2 friends that have probably the same version pack as you do, and one of them still uses it almost exclusively to this day. The one friend got his pack while in the Boy Scouts in the late 60's, and the other when him and I graduated high school in 71 and left the next day on a week long trip from Yosemite Valley to June Lake.
  As someone that retired just last week, 3 days before Christmas, I aim to have the summer of my dreams this upcoming season. I have numerous trips planned, starting shorter (85 miles in 7 days), a 150 miler over 10 days, and ending with the JMT in September. With the joy of no longer having to work, I realize I should have retired a lot earlier. Oh well, I guess we all live and learn.
