[pct-l] John Muir Trail Questions

Getting to and from Reds Meadow from Mammoth would be easier than any other
place (there are busses to Devils Postpile).  You could also get rides down
from Vermillion, but you would have to line something up to get there. But,
folks are friendly there and I'm sure you could do it if you call and make
arrangements. You also go out over Kearsage Pass to Independence, but that
may be too far if you start in the Valley.
