Practically not JMT, but the end of our last day that began on Mount Whitney was a night at Mono Lake, with water levels about 8 feet below of what you see there today.

I'm heading out Friday to do a solo northbound to complete my own yo-yo, no video this time, just a Nikon D40, which is an upgrade from the above point-n-shoot Canon quality.

On page 11 of this thread, "Day 16..continued", is one of Peter Burke's photos of this same section of the trail up to Forester Pass heading N to S. On this spectacular day in Aug. '09, the valley along Bubbs Creek was filled with clouds, but blue sky was breaking out above me and at the pass. The pass was under storm clouds as I climbed, but cloudless when I arrived an hour later.
up to Foresters along the trail to heaven?Forester Pass The pass looked threateningSwitchbacks down from Forester But, the trail down was clear with sun in the valley.

the monster guards the Canyon on 10/02/2009 12:30:49 MDT Print View

monster the monster of Le Conte Canyon

Read about these amazing trees that can live for thousansds of years. The Fox Tail Pines can be see along the Bighorn Plateau (map 1) One could spend hours just photgraphing the trunks and stumps. (I do not know why the photo is flipped) The trees adapt to the dry soil by just having a few of their branches live.
Fox Tail Pine Fox Tail Pine They are like the Bristlecone Pines that can be seen in a forest just north of Lone Pine. Worth a visit.

This plaque is on the JMT just south of Forester Pass. If you are heading south you would walk right by it. We WERE heading south but somehow we noticed it. I really makes you realize how much work and sacrifice has gone into providing the trails we hike!

In memory of Donald I. Downs

I suppose you are a JMT junkie when you can look at these three random photos posted and immediately know exactly where they were taken before even reading the captions...and it's also pretty obvious you were there later in the season than I usually go. Late August?

going back in 4 months...

Hey Peter,

You are right, started Aug. 21 and ended on Sept. 5th. If you want to continue the game I havn't added any captions to the other collection :) "A few from the JMT"
