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.

JMT Day 13: Rain, Sun and a Monster!

The bad news of the day is that it is still raining when I wake up. The good news is that my tent seems to be pretty unimpressed by the elements, even though it was advertised as well-ventilated.

I am not really keen on hiking in the pouring rain, so I decide to wait for a while. At 7 am the rain stops and we get up quickly.
