On-site trip report from Palisade Lake

We got over Mather Pass when the rain hit.  We didn't feel like hiking in the rain, so we set up our tents in the first trees we found. It rained for about an hour, then the sun came out. Jim and Ian left camp for a hike, and I sat in my chair and did a status report on our trip so far, about 11 days into the John Muir Trail.
