John Muir Trail Map

Day 2

Started on the trail at 7 and the first 2hrs felt good started to think about going up the switchback an dry camping up the trial. As I reach Mirror Lake thing started to go south on me, Had a hard time catching my breath and started to really slow down and stopped often so I just started to take my time up to Trail Camp. Came allot of day hiker that went up Mt. Whitney and came across this group of 3 backpacks that where going to hike the John Muir Trail but end up turning back at Trail Camp because one of them got alt. sickens. I told myself they should have spend another day in Trail Camp to try to get use to the height. Got to Trail Camp around 12 and found a sport to camp out. Am wondering if I should to try to summit Whitney or not at this point don't think I will try but going to wait and sleep on it and make up my mind when I get closer to the trial jct. Trail Camp started to fill up as the day wore on.
