I will try to make a trail report to go along with the photos. Thanks for viewing.

Loved your pictures. Thanks for sharing them. They brought back some wonderful memories. Did you spend the night at MTR? I recognized the hot springs bath.

Thank you Jan. I did spend actually 2 nights at MTR. The food was "heavy" but tasty. The hot springs bath was delightful. The cabins (yes I abandoned my tent for 2 nights) were overrun with mice. The place certainly had character. You really felt like you were on a ranch.

We spent one night there this past summer when we hiked from Mono Hot Springs and exited at Florence Lake. The mice were so bad, they actually moved us to a different cabin. It is an amazing place and I was thrilled to get the chance to stay there. We didn't know they were allowing single night stays until a fellow hiker that passed us northbound mentioned it. We hiked farther than we had intended that day just on the gamble that they might have a vacancy. Nice people.

Hmmm .. . Ansel Adams Wilderness, Donohue Pass, It's hard to choose. It was all so great. I'm contemplating thru-hiking again next summer, and possibly doing a 280-mile section of the Continental Divide Trail the following summer (2011). Not sure yet.
