Mt. Whitney, and AT vs. PCT
Greg Fisher will present slides and commentary from a week-long backpacking trip on the PCT and John Muir Trail in the high Sierra in 2015, including a trek up Mt. Whitney to the highest point in the lower 48 states. He will also include a few observations about the AT and a Top Ten list of differences between hiking on the AT and the PCT.
