Last year, my girlfriend and I did an 8-day trip starting at Onion Valley / Kearsarge Pass in the north, came down the JMT, and went up Whitney from the back side. It was epic.
Here is the lake just before Kearsarge Pass:
Here is my after-Whitney cheesebuger and beer pic:
taking a dump in the bag didn't bother me too much... the girls on the other hand...haha
i actually used my wag bag on the switch backs, it all of a sudden hit me and i had to go. there were people going down and up and i managed to do the deed in like a minute. i dont think anybody saw, it was pretty ninja. haha
that 8 day trip sounds rad, i really want to do the john muir trail, but it's hard to find the time to set aside 15-17 days of backpacking
that burger and beer at the portal store was delicious, huh?
