I finished a 13 day section hike from Silver Pass (Rush Creek entry into JMT) to Bishop Pass (LeConte canyon exit out of the JMT). Ten days of this was on the JMT, one day to get into the JMT and two days to exit the JMT.
Here are a collection of relive.cc maps for the daily hikes.
Silver lake to Thousand Island lake
For some reason, my Apple Watch failed to record the GPS co-ordinates today. This GPX was extracted from Garmin Inreach and it is grossly wrong. We 9.45 miles and climbed 3,220 feet that day (according to Apple watch).
The interactive mode feature in relive.cc is handy.
Thousand Island lake to Shadow lake
This was a hot day so we took a 90 minute break at Shadow lake to dip ourselves before continuing to Rosalie lake.
Shadow lake to Rosalie lake
Rosalie lake to Red’s meadow
Mostly downhill towards Red’s meadow.
Red’s meadow to Duck Creek
Slow long climb to Duck Creek with fantastic views of the Mammoth region.
Duck Creek to Squaw Lake
Long slow climb up to Squaw lake.
Squaw lake to Mono Creek
Short day because of thunderstorms and we did not want to climb Big Bear switchbacks later in the day. This is the closest exit to VVR.
Mono creek to Rose lake inlet
Long brutal day of climbing.
Rose lake inlet to MTR
Free fall down to MTR with thunderstorms pushing us hard.
MTR to Evolution Creek
Introduction to Kings Canyon and the Gorge.
Evolution Creek to Sapphire lake
Evolution valley. Best day of my trip.
Sapphire Lake to LeConte Canyon
Exiting Evolution valley through Muir Pass. Oh the views. The downhill from Muir Pass is brutal. At least I was not going in the other way.
LeConte Canyon to Upper Ducy Basin
The climb out of LeConte. Goodness.
Upper Ducy Basin to South Lake
Up and over Bishop Pass.
