It was a cold at night and a slow morning getting ready. Thankfully, the skies were clear.
There was still plenty of frozen hail covering the ground.
Today’s route and the rest of the trail I’ll be doing basically follows the John Muir Trail. There are a lot more people on trail than I’ve seen in a while… mostly JMT hikers.
My body and legs definitely did not have their normal energy/power. Hopefully, a good nights rest cures that problem. Perhaps it was the cold/wet energy sapping weather last night ?
