Relive videos of the JMT section hike

Day by day

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.

Day 1

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.

Day 2

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.

Day 6
