John Muir Trail - Day 3, California, U.S.A. (August 27, 2008)

Day 3: Garnet Lake to Reds Meadow (approximately 13.5 miles)
The still waters of Garnet Lake reflect Mt. Ritter and Banner Peak in the early morning light. If it looks slightly chilly in this photo, that's because it was: we woke up with frost on our sleeping bags!

Peaceful Rosalie Lake would be a wonderful place to camp for a few nights
