Meeting up with friends in the backcountry can be harder than you might think: Nate, Jon and I were doing a loop around the Minarets via the North Fork San Joaquin
and planned to meet Jenna at Iron Lake for the last night. Well, Jenna lost her map, then lost the trail. She left us this note on the trail sign, saying she went home, so we wouldn’t worry – classic.

I made it to Alstot Lake – then really lost the trail – camped @ Alstot & Straube junction. Hung out then bailed. I dropped my MAP yesterday earlier & don’t feel comfortable w/o it b/c lost obvious trail. Hoping I run into “ya all” on the trail.
