John Muir Trail, August 2005

Day 8:
Lake Edison to Upper Bear Creek Meadow.
10 Miles.

Another utility day. Getting out of Vermilion and over Bear Ridge there is not much photogenic scenery.

The trail beside Bear Creek.
First thing the next morning I would cross this creek, and begin 6 straight days with soaking wet shoes. Between all the creek crossings and storms they just never dried out.

Campsite in the lower left, at Upper Bear Creek Meadow. Should have gone another 1.5 miles down the trail and camped at Rosemarie Meadow, which was much more nice. 08-02-camp
