    Rather than a loop, try hiking up to Mount Baden Powell. It's very pretty and should be hikable pretty much year round. Otherwise, get it in the car and drive to Mammoth and hike a loop based out of...

    June is tricky because most of the PCT north of Kennedy Meadows (i.e, the start of the Sierra Nevada) is under snow then. You could start at Walker Pass or Mojave and hike north. This gives you some...

    This is going to sound a little snide, but if you don't know much about SLRs, the OM-2 isn't a good place to start. Put it on your mantle and look kindly on it, but choose something different to...

    Have fun on the Hayduke. Someday, maybe. Buckskin and Paria are absolute gems and I wish I could spend a long time in the area.

    The clothing thing isn't necessary and I don't know of anyone who actually does it. I'm only carrying the clothes I'm wearing, except for a set of thermals and rain gear.

    1) The best parts of the Sierra are near tree line. You won't find a lot to eat. You can find Mormon Tea to drink, though.

    The Timberline Trail around Hood is also good. Two days and a morning is all you need, so a long weekend hike it very doable (I think its about 40 miles). I hiked this a couple of years back:

    We got a snow dump recently, which has helped. However, the snow is still on the low side. No predictions until late March or early April, though, will have any accuracy.

    Mags and I are going hiking in Utah at the end of March, so there will be plenty of time to get into the finer points of French and Norwegian culture and their application to the Sierra High Route.
