John Muir Trail Map

More snow

**updating several days worth from red's meadow. No pictures yet, will upload later.

Solid snow until 1000 island lake. Island pass was a joke, not even a pass really. Easy after Donahue. When we got to the end of 1000 island lake, the JMT and PCT diverged. The PCT trail was patchy snow with lots of footprints. The JMT was solid, untouched snow. Scary. We took the PCT for that section. I would have liked to do the true JMT, bu I didn't want Taru and I to be the only people for miles around, in the middle of a snowy trail. If we got injured, it could have been days til someone came by (*turned out not to be true. We met a JMT hiker the next day that did the actual trail, but we didn't know that then).

Jesse And Taru's JMT Hike

The John Muir Trail passes through a land of 13,000 and 14,000 foot peaks, of lakes in the thousands, and of canyons and granite cliffs. It's also a land blessed with the mildest, sunniest climate of any major mountain range in the world. The John Muir Trail is 211 miles long and runs (mostly in conjunction with the PCT) from Yosemite Valley to Mt Whitney, in California.
