JMT Day 17: Crossing Forester Pass (4009m)

A windy night is followed by a windy morning, so I pack up quickly and start hiking just as Rob, Peter and John start preparing breakfast.

I have about 650 meters remaining to climb to Forester Pass. There is a lake half way up that seems to be protected from the wind. There I cook my breakfast at one of the few tiny campsites so many hikers have aimed for yesterday.


JMT Day 16: Glen Pass & Bubbs Creek

I wake up to another beautiful day at Rae Lakes. The scenery at this place is really amazing.

What’s even more amazing: I have been warned about the merciless mosquitoes here, but not a single bug has shown up. It is now over a week ago that I’ve seen the last of those bloodsuckers.
