I hiked Mt Langley and passed those lakes. There are definitely good hanging spots in the lakes basin.
I have an Atmos 50L, and sent you a PM with details.
Mt Charleston North Loop is nice:
Let's see your Hammeck set up in the wilderness. This one was near Bishop Pass in the Sierra Nevada.
The high desert is a great place for hanging, if you can find trees and don't mind strong winds (40 mph gusts) and extreme temperature swings (40 degrees or more). The Mojave desert encompasses...

Worn twice around the house. One year old.

Nice one, keep the videos coming.
I would try driving a bit farther to Mt. Charleston, plenty of juniper & pines above desert altitude.
West rim Zion campsites are good for hammocking.
I very much appreciated the fine hammocks you produce and am spreading the word to my friends.
This was a two week trip to the eastern Sierras for relaxing, backpacking, and peak bagging. It was kind of a bust due to poor weather (monsoon) which meant more time for relaxing. I had a new 11...
Nice, I was down at Bishop Pass around the same time doing some peak bagging, it was a bit breezy above 10,000'. I used a small asym tarp that's a bit less noisy in windy conditions. Supermoon was...
For sale is a long/wide Exped Synmat sleeping pad in very good condition. Used less than ten times. Inflation valve and release valve work perfectly. Pumps air by pushing down with both hands (clever...
JRB has the best price on this pad, and it's cut to the perfect 3/4 size.
For sale is a nine month old Wilderness Logics Lite Owl hammock in good condition. The color is coyote brown.
Constructed of double 1.1 oz....
I recently started using my netted hammock and found that the pullouts help keep netting off the head & shoulders. However, it seems to push the sides of the under quilt down a few inches, probably...
Two nights at Tioga Lake, hanging in great weather at 9,000 feet in a cozy campsite.
Hiked Mt Dana, a 4,000 foot climb in four...

I hiked 40 miles of the JMT years ago from Tuolumne Meadows to Mammoth Lakes. Last summer I hiked Mt Whitney. There are plenty of trees below 11,000 feet all through the sierras, so plan your trip...
First stop Owens Valley, warm 85 deg, nighttime in the 50's. Two hammocks, three trees.
I use two thin 25"x48" pads, stacked and spread out to about 40" wide with some overlap. Keeps elbows and knees warm. The jrb torso pads 1/4" evazote are nice and cheap.

This is a beautiful, lightweight jacket for hiking, running, and cycling. It is six months old and in excellent condition. Used for jogging around town. Selling to replace with medium.
There are plenty of tricks for keeping dry with an undersized tarp. Amazingly, the synthetic mummy bag kept off a lot of moisture. You also want to reduce diagonal lay so your feet don't stick out....
We had two days of moderate rain, and my gear was set up for the duration, an 11' lite owl hammock with foam pads under a hennessy napkin tarp. Usually the ends of the hammock get damp in rain but it...
The under quilt suspension is very annoying when it gets tangled around my feet (3/4 length) or rubs against my head. I switch to pads often for this reason. Also, it is easy to mistakenly set up...

Price reduced to $80 shipped.
I've been looking for a hammock exactly like this for months:
10 feet long
Double layer silnylon
Integrated bug net with "topless" mode
Maybe you can cut down a sky tent to fit your dimensions:
Patagonia full zip R1 jacket, men's large. Six months old. Very good condition. Nickel color. Top rated, excellent mid layer, can also be used as base layer.
I have a synmat 7 lw, same size as yours but slightly warmer. My lite owl is a foot longer than the blackbird. The pad is too long to fit well diagonally, the foot end slopes upward about 30 degrees....
36 degrees no problem, according to this person from Florida(!):
"As I was doing a 2-month extended trip including backpacking in California I did not want to take any big camping gear on my last...
The z-lite sol is very expensive for a piece of foam. Plus, it has ridges which aren't useful in the hammock - they are designed for comfort on the ground. Ridges make packing much more bulky. I...
Hey Boston, I think what happens is that down has a lower specific heat than other insulators, so it feels warm very quickly. This causes people to think that it's "colder" wearing layers under the...
It goes below 50 but starts getting cool, okay for camping but not "toasty".
On the ground/snow heat transfer (conduction) is much less than hanging in the breeze (convection). In the hammock you...
