      Car shuttle for thru-hike of High Sierra Trail

      Sequoia National Park Feb 21, 2015 at 5:23 PM

      Hello all! I am planning a thru hike of the High Sierra trail for summer 2015. While I have the logistics of the actual hike nailed down, I'm having trouble with transportation from trailheads. My plan would be to leave my rental car at Whitney Portal rd then hire a service to take me to the other side and leave me at Crescent Meadow.

      I know it's a long drive and the few services I found are quite expensive. Curious if anyone has experience with other alternatives? Public transport doesn't seem practical. Suggestions or advice would be appreciated.

      Thanks!

      We're relocating back to the Tahoe area. We've lived in South Tahoe, Stateline, and Gardnerville. We're thinking of trying Truckee mostly because of the I-80 and easy access to Sacramento and Reno. Any thoughts on raising children (tweens and teens) in Truckee? My kids like outdoor activities and we don't care about shopping. But what are the people like?

      Visitng the park over Memorial Day

      Sequoia National Park Feb 20, 2015 at 8:55 PM

      My family would like to visit Sequoia National Park and Kings Canyon over the Memorial Day weekend. I know it is on the cusp of Summer, but can anyone provide some insight if any of the roads/ares might still be closed? Also, we would like to camp, but it seems most of the campsites are first come, first serve. Does anyone have experience camping there over this holiday weekend. Are the crowds horrible? We will be arriving late Friday night from San Francisco so I'm worried it will be hard to find a campsite. We plan to extend our long weekend through Wednesday and would like to explore a lot of area. Any though, opinions, and/or suggestions are much appreciated!

    • Need help identifying a cactus

      by Noemy83 Online Now Jul 18, 2014 at 10:14 PM

      Hi recently photographed a cactus in JTNP. It branches off into different limbs like an ocotillo or cholla but it's "body" colors are purple and green and the coolest part is that it's thorns are multi-colored w/reds and yellows. Its the coolest thing! I live in the area and never noticed this before until I took a super close up picture of it. Can anyone help me identify this?

      Are there any rattlesnakes around this time of year? Is it a real danger for a solo hiker? Where is the nearest facility with anti-venom available?

    • Joshua Tree National Park Drive-By

      by tropicdiver Online Now Feb 4, 2007 at 9:45 AM

      On my way from San Diego to Yuma to meet my new grandson, I plan on driving up to Joshua Tree National Park via the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park.

      I'm really not going to have much time to do any hiking (perhaps some short hikes, hopefully), as my time will be rather limited. Is it best to enter the park from the North and then drive south thru it or should I enter from the south and just head northwest to get a taste of the park?

      I've looked at numerous tips this morning about Joshua Tree National Park to get a general overview of the park and it sounds like the west side of the park will be the best area for me to explore in the short time I am there.

      Any suggestions of "must see" areas?

      Thanks.
