Images from Day 5: July 31, 1997
(J13) Muir Pass: After a hard 1000 foot elevation
gain, we reached Muir Pass. Here's a cool shot showing the entire
Wanda lake region (looking West from the pass). Our previous campsite
is right next to Jason's left elbow.
(J14) Muir Pass Hut: Monroe, Pat, and Xander
in front of the Muir Pass Hut, right on top of Muir Pass.
(J15) Meadow After Muir Pass: This a meadow we
encountered a few miles down from Muir Pass. Xander in the back,
Jason in the front.
(J16) LeConte Canyon: Jason with his right foot
in a treacherous waterfall in LeConte Canyon. He was there originally
to take a picture of the waterfall and the canyon, which is the next picture
(J17) LeConte Canyon: A great shot of Upper LeConte
Canyon from a waterfall. Pat and Xander blend in well but can be
seen next to the orange "97" in the lower left hand corner.
(P11) Big Pete Meadow: Picture of Big Pete Meadow
from higher up the trail.
(P12) Big Pete Meadow: Closer in shot of Big
Pete once we got there.
(J18) LeConte Canyon: Pat, in a view of the lower
LeConte Canyon valley with the mountain "The Citadel" in the background.
At this point on the trail we are heading up into Dusy Basin from the Canyon.
(J19) LeConte Canyon: Monroe in front of the
(J20) LeConte Canyon: Monroe and Jason on the
way from LeConte Canyon to Dusy Basin, again with the Citadel in the background.
We liked LeConte canyon. Can you tell?
