Recognize that the Spring, when most No-bounders leave Campo, in Southern
California is the windiest season here.  Read through the journals on the web
and you'll find high wind days are a common lament in the Southern sections
of the trail before the Sierra.  Although practical at shedding sun and rain,
umbrellas are too compatible with high winds.

But then umbrellas make beautiful kites too!  Just bring some string. ;-)
