We attempted a “flip-flop” hike.  That means our plan was to  start at HWY 178 near Lake Isabella on June 10, 2017 and head north to Manning Park, BC.  Once (if) successful, we planned to head back down to our starting point in mid-October and hike from HWY 178 south to Campo, California.

BUT…

As we found out, plans change quickly!  This map summarizes the almost 1700 mile journey we ended up doing as we flipped, flopped and strategized around snow and swollen rivers, forest fires and early snowstorms.
