    Thanks. My plan is to drive there and he said I can park for $2 a day. They close Labor Day, so I'll have to figure out about my car, if I want to hike another week up North before heading south.

    How about dumping a liter of water. I tend to only carry about 1.5 liters and guzzle at water spots. I also drink a liter leaving camp.
