My kids are hiking the John Muir Trail with my dad, but he lost his wallet so they have no money. Someone found my Dad's wallet, but I need to find a way to get it to him or find a place where he can pick it up. Does anyone on SP live in the Bishop or Mammoth Lakes area?
We're doing Starlight and Tbolt in a few weeks and I am deciding on which direction the traverse and ascents are least difficult. From Tbolt to Starlight or the reverse?

My wife and I are heading up to Yosemite on Columbus Day weekend and are hiking from Tuolumne to the Valley, tagging Cathedral Peak on the way. Crossing my fingers for a big winter but hoping El Nino holds off until after the long weekend. I know the Parks Service hiker shuttle stops 9/20. Does anyone know a way to get from the valley to Tuolumne Meadows besides hitching? If anyone is planning ...
