Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass. It’s about learning to hike in the rain.

What an amazing day. The weather pattern continued so I got started early to beat some of the storm. Today I climbed Forester Pass, the tallest pass on the JMT/PCT and is over 13,000 feet. It is kinda like climbing Whitney. When I got to the top, hail and wind hit. I was there like 2 seconds. Today I also visited my favorite place in the Sierras, the Bighorn Plateau. I was inspired.
The lighting all day was incredible and it rained off and on all day. Rain gear was essential and my trash compactor bag worked perfectly as a rain cover once again. I am camped in a beautiful spot with expansive views. I am clean, well fed and the storm has passed. Yaaaay!
