JMT cont… Clouds Rest and Beyond

Clouds rest is so called because clouds normally rest there because it is so freaking high. I must say lugging a 20kg backpack up to Clouds Rest was pretty tough. Here is a pic of the missus taking in the view of Half Dome on the left. She is relaxed. I am not going to mention that this was an easy day for her because she chickened out of climbing half dome the night before. 😛

We camped alongside the lake and it was beautiful. We even managed a ball shrinking swim.DSC00523

 

Over the next few days we would make our way to thousand island lakes which was one of my most anticipated campsites. And it didn’t disappoint:

This was now day 4 and there were a few little blisters and aches starting to greet us each morning…

And this is when the wildfires started to get thick!

Thanks for reading 🙂
