John Muir Trail - Day 8, California, U.S.A. (September 1, 2008)

Day 8: Aspen Meadows to Evolution Lake (approximately 11 miles)
Evolution Creek winds through McClure Meadow
Evolution Lake, just below 11,000 feet. Many of the nearby peaks were named in 1895 for the prominent figures in the new field of evolutionary biology.
