Lone Pine Creek runs from Mount Whitney down to Lone Pine. Beautiful mountain creek. The creek has cut down quite deep in almost every accessible place. Last night James secured from a very nice local mountaineering shop, a filtration system, microorganisms, with a very suitable 6L bag Arrangement which he casts into the water making access possible even with the very steep steep embankments. James Soul values freedom from the corporate state. It's just one more step. Very gratifying. As he gains his stride it also might slightly reduce the amount of weight carried up these many thousand foot climbs.
