Packing in

So on trail to Giant summit we'd be looking to camp sooner rather than later - closer to trail head. Sounds like washbowl is closer but Falls may be easier with packs and offers super close and than ones above Falls.

Yes - we have access to a canister but I hang food everywhere else. My daughter likes the "bear-muda triangle": cook waaay over there, hang waay over there and sleep waaay over there.

We are thinking day after Thanksgiving. Will have zero degree bags, layers and microspikes. Open to any other suggestions - this will be latest we have hiked in the Peaks. I expect ice but not significant snow (happy to turn around).

[My apologies if this is hijacking, happy to start new thread if that is more appropriate and will get some photos if we go to contribute to this thread]
