John Muir Trail Map

Day 1

Started walking to the Visitor Center in Lone Pine where I needed to pick up my permit. As I was waiting to get my permit I ask this guy name Seth if he was going to Whitney Portal but he wasn't but could give me a ride to the street where I needed to be on to get a ride after talking to him he decided to give me a ride up to the Portal which was so cool.Put my pack down at the store and had a nice breakfast before I headed out.

Was on the trail a little after 9 and it was slow going took a brake seem to me every 5 min or so which I didn't care because I knew I needed to take my time. One thing that concern me was that I sleep in Lone Pine the night before it took me about 5 hours to reach trail camp. Along the way came across a group that was thinking about going apart one group was going to camp out at outpost camp the other was thinking about going up to trail camp I offer to use my stove to heat up the water that the group that was going to say but came out to be that they all stay in outpost
I have to say that there whee allot of people coming down but I enjoy talking to them as they past by it made the time go by
