The second of three annual issues, 1902-1904. George W. Stewart was the president of the Mt. Whitney Club, as well as co-editor of the JOURNAL, along with Ben M. Maddox and Harry G. Stuart. Articles in this issue: "The Country of the Golden Trout" by Theodore H. Hittell, "Outfitting for a Mountain Trip" by Geo. W. Stewart, "Suggestions for Women" [Outfitting for a Mountain Trip], by Mrs. G. W. Stewart, "Trails into the Mt. Whitney and Kern River Regions," by P. M. Norboe, "Forestry Legislation Needed" by C. S. Newhall, Forest Superintendent, "Itinerary of Trip to Mt. Whitney" by Ben M. Maddox, "Mt. Whitney" by Geo. W. Stewart, and the anonymously printed "Important Trail Work." Norboe's "Trails into the Mt. Whitney and Kern River Regions," pages 60-71, is an article of considerable interest and historical importance. Aside from promoting the region, the main activity of the Mt. Whitney Club was exploring the mountains, "seeking new ways into hitherto inaccessible regions, and laying out more direct routes with better grades for existing trails ... The result is to bring the wildest and grandest sections of the Sierras nearer to the people ..." (p. 134: 1:3). A fine copy. All issues of this journal are exceedingly rare. (#167213).
