Sorting through resupply stuff at Muir Trail Ranch
The shed where all the resupply buckets are stored
Which way to Muir Pass?
Off to Muir Pass on my own with a heavy pack
A short ways out of Muir Trail Ranch - note the gathering clouds. They would let loose later that evening with rain and lightning.
They seem to kind of call everything around here the John Muir Wilderness
Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Park cover the majority of the southern half of the trail
Start heading up towards Muir Pass - you can see the ominous looking clouds
This is the kind of terrain I was caught in when it started to rain buckets of rain. I had to keep hiking for a couple miles before I found some place to camp.
