July 21, 2010 Trip Plan: Walker to Kennedy Meadows, to Tuolumne Meadows

 What follows is the trip plan that I am executing tomorrow. It is actually my safety report that I sent to a trusted individual who I will contact at my resupply point and at the end of the trip. If I do not report in a timely fashion, they will report this to the proper authorities.

This report includes route and time estimates for each leg of this two-part trip between Rodriquez Flat, on the Eastern Sierra Flank above the town of Walker Ca, on Hwy 395, to Tuolumne Meadows, in Yosemite National Park.

Jumping Spider at 10,000 feet, Big Sam in the Emigrant Wilderness, Tahoe to Yosemite Trail

Heading up the Northern Flank of Big Sam I came upon this unusual looking Spider.

Jumping Spider on Big Sam, High Emigrant Wilderness

Note the granite coloring that matches the granitic environment, the beautiful pattern on its back, and who can miss the massive head. Thanks to Professor John Hafernik, San Francisco State University, for the identification.
