John Muir Trail - Day 4, California, U.S.A. (August 28, 2008)

Day 4: Reds Meadow to Purple Lake (approximately 14.8 miles)
The aftermath of a fire close to Reds Meadow. The nearby Reds Meadow Resort has a great little diner serving pancakes and burgers to hungry JMT hikers.
Stunning views of distant granite peaks
A lucky horseshoe I found along the trail. Although I would have loved to take it home with me, I couldn't bring myself to carry it after leaving behind a brand new book and a large bag of food (in an effort to reduce the weight of my pack) at Reds Meadow.
The Sierra mountains fade to blue in the distance

Purple Lake reflects the darkening sky; thankfully, it didn't rain!
