Dude, Great pics and write up.
I've done the lost coast and it is well worth the effort to see. You really traveld a lot of places and had me remembering the times I was in some of the same places.
I did the 9 Mile canyon down from Kennedy Meadows the last day it was dirt. The paving crews had stopped for lunch when I was making my way over to the Kernville side.
You pretty well done it and seen it all. Excellent.
I've got to try your style of travel more often.
