    That would be my recommendation. CS 95 is not nearly as nice as CS 92. Plus the climb up the Wolf Ridge trail is a bit steeper.

    Sometimes, the devil is in the details. The seemingly low utilization for 46 and 51 is reasonably explained by the fact that those sites did not exist until the very end of data collection period.

    Day 1 logistics would certainly be easier if you started on the LeConte end. You could park right at one of several trail heads (Alum Cave would be my recommendation) and get right on the trail. ...
