Well as with all great plans, most of this has changed. I sprained my knee a week and a half ago, and one of my hiking partners also had to back out. As it stands now we'll be doing 3 days in the park. Right now I'm planning on leaving Leatherwood Ford, and heading up the JMT to Station Camp crossing, crossing the river and heading back down the opposite bank back to Leatherwood. Looking at the map, and through my books, this looks to be about 25 miles round trip, and the only major elevation gain will be hiking up to Angel Falls when we're fresh. We'll lose that same elevation on day two as we approach Station Camp crossing. The rest looks like ridge running for the most part. That should be good for my knee. If things go really smooth we might tack on a few more miles to go see a sight or two. We'll just play that part by ear.
