Days 2-4 Golden Trout Wilderness Big Loop

It was a great day until the last couple of hours. Relentless gnats hovered over my eyes so I just kept hiking. I had intended on camping at Little Kern Lake, but between the gnats, biting flies, and mosquitos, I just kept going.

John Muir Trail – Days 10-12 Fish Creek to Mammoth Lakes

After much struggle, a few of our team members due to exhaustion, fear, blisters, a wedding shower, and knee pain will not be continuing. I admire the strength in hikers that say “no” and know they will be back at it another day. The trail will be there. They are the true heroes.
