Log

Late December 2019: Dave H. proposes hiking near Mammoth Lakes in the Ansel Adams Wilderness. Proposed hiking points include (in order): Silver Lake, Gem Lake, Agnew Pass, Devil’s Postpile, and Obsidian Dome

1/2/2020: Joe D. drafts map with proposed hiking route (for all hiking points) and area trail system. 55 miles is a lot!

1/14: Proposed route shortened to 52 miles, the route could be roughly cut in half (~26 miles) if ending hike at Mammoth ski resort (2 cars or Uber needed)

1/23: New route shortened to 26 miles ending at Mammoth Lakes parking (need ride back to starting point)

4/19: Logistics, route, and group discussion (LENNY IS INVITED!). Determined 2-3 nights on the trail with overnight spots South of Agnew Pass (fishing at Gem Lake) and North of Devil’s Postpile. Total distance could be shortened to ~16 miles via the Express Route.
