Thomas that is Red Cone just past Reds Meadows....and for a trip report-well?? I am not the best story teller or spellur for that matter. A picture speaks a thousand words.
I took a journal with me and wrote every night. I took notes on the wildlife I saw which was the most important thing to me. Like I saw 24 total Deer and 5 Elk. Hummingbirds, falcons, hawks, quail, marmots, ducks, one Garter snake, 3 different types of lizards, one coyote, frogs, trout and one very large harry spider in my TENT!!!! Oh yea and lot of bats right before sunset. I really want to hike the JMT again I just need to find the time.
THe JMT is truly a hike of a lifetime!!!
