JMT Day 15: Pinchot Pass & Rae Lakes

This was the first night that felt a bit cold. It was 5°C (41°F) inside the tent, but what’s worse is that I had some rather wet nights recently, either rainy or close to lakes. My sleeping bag seems to have soaked up some moisture and hence lost insulation.

Overall I didn’t sleep too well, besides drying the sleeping bag I will have to find a solution on what to use as cushion, my fleece jacket is not really working.

JMT Day 14: Mather Pass – Epic!

Sunshine and a clear blue sky in the morning! What a good idea to save Mather Pass for today. My campsite, however, is still in the shade, so I pack up and start immediately – delaying breakfast for later. I have about 1000 ft (300m) left to climb until I reach the pass.

When I reach the pass the amazing views to the other side are completely mind-blowing.
