John Muir Trail Map

Day 4

Started on the trail at 7:00 felt good but once I reach the section where the cables where things seem to fall apart on me I really labor going up the switchbacks saw these two girls that made plans to climb the snow chute, I tell you they got bigger balls than I do.I just took my time dealing with one switchback at a time if I need to stop I did.Some people that I came across where turning back because their body was having a hard time. Once I reach trail crest I saw the two girls summit climbing the snow chute. I reach the trail jct around 12:30. I decided not to go up to Mt Whitney really didn't not want to go the 3.8 miles round trip plus wanted to get a jump on far I wanted to go today.

Well on my way down my body started to shut down on me felt that I had nothing in my tank I guess I should have stop and ate some thing at the jct It took me 4 hrs to reach Guitar Lake. There was a group of backpackers there already and wanted to know what where the trail condition.
