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.
