We just got back from a week in the Toiyabe National Forest, northeast of Yosemite. If you have a few minutes, check out our trip report -- lots of pictures and some text:

I've done some of those hikes, but your photos are better. Gorgeous country. I may PM you about the location of that campsite.

Thanks for sharing your trip!

Did I somehow miss the BC trip that you were planning a couple of months ago?
