At mile 878.7. Hiked 21 PCT miles plus 1.5 miles back to PCT from Muir Trail Ranch (MTR) plus 1.5 miles from PCT to Edison Boat Ferry to Vermillon Valley Ranch (VVR). Here is just a few people tenting at MTR AS I left at 6:20 am.  One of several lakes leading up to Selden Pass. Another lake. I met a large group from South Korea here.

At mile 857.7. Hiked 18.9 miles today plus 1.5 miles to Muir Ranch. At Muir Trail Ranch they have 5 gallon buckets labeled for each type of food and other non-food categories.

I provisioned enough to get me to Reds Meadow. All free. After resupply I walked to the camping area for hikers alongside the San Joaquin River. A rope is suspended...

The valley finally ends at a series of high mountain lakes.  While taking a dinner break on the Mather Pass climb, I met several young girls with day packs. They said that they were on...

I climbed again to a point just below the final climb of Mather Pass.  Here is a rock formation that looks like a giant thumb. Last night I camped close to this dome. This view is looking back after hiking for a short while. Here are some of the many mountains I have been seeing. Only one person at a time is allowed on this swinging bridge over the King River. I...
