Muir Hut at Muir Pass for stranded or curious hikers

Jackrabbit and Photo - PCT - Sep 17, 2012 - Sept 17 Blog
Sept 17, Monday: hiking day 15

We had an easy hike today, mostly down, arriving at
Red's Meadow Resort around 1:00, just in time to have lunch in the restaurant. Awesome! I had a BLT with chips and a root beer float, Paul a grilled ham and
Cheese and pie with ice cream.
Real food tastes so good after being on the trail for a while. Mmmm. Other than 2 ranger huts, these are the first buildings we've seen in 14 days.
It's been fun shooting the breeze here with some of the other hikers, still these are mostly JMT, (John Muir Trail) folks heading south, (We're heading north). I realize we really have a lot of this down having put as many miles in as we have.
We were going to hitch into Mammoth, but we have everything we need right here, laundry, showers, room and restaurant, even a decently stocked store for hiker stuff.
We picked up our resupply package, sorted through it all and then made a donation of the remainder Steve's food to the hiker box.
We went by our first burned area on our hike so far except for day 1. This was such a huge part of the landscape in the desert and even parts of Oregon. This whole section seems to have been spared. Also today there was a huge area of blown down trees, giant trees, the whole forest for about 1-2 square miles. Apparently some intense freak wind storm last year.
We're psyched about breakfast at the restaurant at 07:00!
We may loll around until lunch or hit the trail right away and head to Toulomne Meadows. Paul is feeling very perky after a washing and 2 solid meals, me too for that matter. Clean clothes!!!!!! (Yes, we were wearing our rain gear this afternoon in the baking sun as we did our laundry).
Real Bed to sleep in!!
