The Mountains are calling… JMT part 3

So we hiked our way along beautiful landscapes like this but the air was getting increasingly hazy. Wildfires nearby meant smoke was getting closer. There were rumours of people leaving the trail because of the smoke.DSC00540We pressed on and got to duck lake:

But it would clear at night:

Hiker were leaving the trail and we started to have the magnificent JMT to ourselves!

Next stop was Papoose lake. This is late afternoon with sun throwing a gorgeous alpen glow across the peaks behind the lake. We spent a blissful night here also 🙂
