From a few days ago as we walked into Tuolumne Meadows. Seated is ‘Maple’ who is another SOBO (southbound) hiker we keep crossing and meeting as we travel along. 

On this day we’ve just caught up with him and ‘Charlemagne’ and his Dad, Colin, standing behind us who’s re-supplying food to him at this sunny early morning stop. It’s cold though. We’d just walked 5 miles and our water bottles froze. 

Colin is a truly awesome Dad and he walked with us for a couple of hours up Lyell Canyon as we headed towards Donohue Pass.
