John Muir Trail - Day 12, California, U.S.A. (September 5, 2008)

Day 12: Just south of Pinchot Pass to Rae Lakes (approximately 10.5 miles)
The morning view of the lake from our campsite
Cheerful yellow flowers brighten the trail
Here I am crossing Woods Creek on the "Golden Gate of the Sierra"
Arrowhead Lake outlet with Fin Dome in the distance (the peak on the right side of the photo)
Trees grow between granite slabs around Rae Lakes
Ashley contemplates our next morning's hike up to Glen Pass
The view from our island campsite near the southern tip of Rae Lakes; it was so quiet that we could hear the fish jumping
