Hot Spring Showers

Reds Meadow

Got started about 8:15am and hiked at a pretty good pace. Had the gleam of Reds Meadow in the eye with visions of a cheese burger. Nice hike and not too many JMT hikers in the morning. Say hi to most but some want to stop and talk about their upcoming passes, especially Muir Pass.

Got to Reds Meadow, got that cheese burger and a 6 pack of Stone IPA! Hung out in the restaurant for a while and charged up the cell phone batteries. Went over to the hot spring showers and they were awesome! Super hot and nice! Met a PCT hiker that hiked last year. Nice guy!

Camped tonight with several other hikers. JMT and PCT. Good stories around the campfire.

Passed PCT mile 900 today! We are only about 400 miles from being half done! Yahoo!

Forgot to mention that on the morning we went into VVR we saw a male grouse. He was all puffed up with tail feathers spread and was calling all interested females. We'd heard this low, almost frog-like call before but finally got to see the animal making it! Lion Heart gave a grouse call back and he flew into the tree above us. Unfortunately, we had to hurry to the VVR ferry so we couldn't continue the mating ritual with the grouse.
