John Muir Trail - Day 14, California, U.S.A. (September 7, 2008)

Day 14: Center Basin trail junction to Wright Creek (approximately 14 miles)
The daunting view towards Forester Pass
Another day, another pass: here we are at the top of 13,180-foot Forester Pass, our first climb over 13,000 feet
Our first trail marker for Mt. Whitney - only 16.1 miles to go!
The dark skies and gnarled tree limbs near Bighorn Plateau could be straight out of a Halloween movie
A weathered tree trunk, dotted with holes
Mountains on every side, as far as the eye can see
Bighorn Plateau - stark yet beautiful
