As I'm set on doing California, I don't have the option of starting in
Manning Park but am sure open to flipping if I need to. Certainly not
the most inviting option but doable. Since most of my wilderness
experience has been on snow and ice, I think it would take an
astoundingly heavy winter for the Sierras to be impassable for me. And
it's always possible. I'm not doing this trip to put myself in danger
anywhere. As you say, Sly, it's about daring and fortitude within
reasonable realms of safety. Indeed!! We shall see what the winter brings.
