JMT Day 2: Back to Square One

After yesterday’s nice warm-up hike I can officially start my John Muir Trail hike today.

Kevin and I take the bus from the Yosemite Lodge up to Glacier Point. At 25$ (one-way) it is not too cheap but this way we can avoid having to hike up to Glacier Point via the steep Four-Mile-Trail.

And the bus ride turns out to be an informative and very entertaining guided tour.


JMT Day 1: Waterfalls, up & down

After arriving in Yosemite and setting up my tent in the backpackers campground, it is time for a first walk.

My permit requires me to start tomorrow at Glacier Point high above the Yosemite Valley, hence I will „miss“ the first miles of the „official“ John Muir Trail route from Happy Isles to Nevada Fall.
