The John Muir Trail - South Lk to North Lake

Ever since I hiked the John Muir Trail with my brother and friends in 1971, I hoped to do it again. Doing it with my kids would be a dream.  In August 2012 I set off with Kevin Anderson, a participant on the 1971 trip, who has been joining my son's scout troop on backpacks for 4 or 5 years.  We also had with us Josh Edvalson, and 4 scouts including my son Jim.

The Sierra did not disappoint for scenery, and we headed over 12,000 Bishop Pass the first day, and camped at the first lake in Dusy Basin.
