    it'll end up being about 21 miles- cutting it short to end at belknap, instead of the official end at the ranger station

    after review... this could be a friday - sunday thing -- with the option
    to stay at belknap sunday night, if we (you) desire. or, meet up at a spot along the hike to hang for the night

    we'll park one vehicle at belknap hot springs on friday afternoon- then drop wood and libations at the planned
    hang spots as we drive north up rt. 126 to the trailhead above clear lake. its all downhill hiking back to
    the hot springs to the 'shuttle' vehicle.
