John Muir Trail - Day 11, California, U.S.A. (September 4, 2008)

Day 11: Upper Palisade Lake to just south of Pinchot Pass (approximately 14.8 miles)
The view from the trail towards Mather Pass, named for Stephen Mather, the first head of the National Park Service
Here I am with Erin at the top of 12,100-foot Mather Pass
Ashley prepares for the descent from 12,130-foot Pinchot Pass, our second pass of the day
This small lake below Pinchot Pass made for a perfect campsite
Ashley and Erin get ready for dinner at our lakeside campsite
