Starry night, taken from the vestibule of my tent


Beautiful morning. Woken to birdsong and woodpecker. Deers.

  

Bridge crossing

  

Monster Rock!

There was a gradual climb up to John Muir Pass then the last mile was postholing through deep snow. Beautiful hut on top built in 1930.

It was a gradual descent as well but I was losing energy and getting tired in the afternoon… I need to rethink my food resupplies, I have hardly any snacks left and what I have isn’t giving me enough energy.

  

    

Stream crossing

 We had a terrific night chatting over dinner together. 

 

An awesome group!
