Two last-week cancellations have opened up spots for two hikers on a trip I'm planning to go on, with the L.A. section of the Sierra Club. Mules carry all the overnight gear; hikers carry day packs to a base camp. Trip August 2 - 6 (except you really have to meet the group on August 1st, to be ready at the trailhead pack station at 7:00AM on August 2). Sierra Club membership not required. See relevant info at this page: sierramulepacks.org ... html under "Cottonwood Lakes." Area of the hike is covered by Mt. Langley and Cirque Peak 7.5' USGS topos. Nearest town on a highway is Lone Pine, CA, on US 395.
