    Nice BEAS .... loved the opening with the whistling along!!!!!
    Glad that you did not get butted or gored hanging over the trail.....
    As to the water .... our always looks that way here in Minnesota .... makes the coffee sassy.

    thanks, I have done the JMT up to Laurel Fork back to the Bandy Creek campgrounds. We started at Leatherwood Fork and followed it but by passed the Gand Loop trail (no water)

    If you want a great book on the BSK get Hiking the Big South Fork by Brenda Deaver. She works at the Bandy Creek visitor center. She can tell you about hiddden camp sites on the JMT
