PCT Hike MM942 To MM956 Tuolumne River

Monday: (08/22) Breakfast at Lake View Restaurant. Not my kind of breakfasts but nice grounds. Scrambled eggs and toast for me, yogurt and fruit for Lou and a blueberry coffee cake for Dawn. We headed up to Tuolumne Meadows. I checked at the Wilderness Office then prepared to leave. I then noticed I didn’t have any of my collapsible water bottles. I’ll have to make do with 3 liters for this section. On trail at 1000 from MM942.

Leaving from Toulumne Meadows starts on a section of dirt road.

The Toulumne River runs down the almost solid rock heading down toward Glen Aulin. On the right I’m already to start from Toulumne meadows.

Lots of rock steps, or in this case they are almost ramps. In fact there is a whole lot of rock in the area, some really big.

Fairly nice trail after Glen Aulin. On the right above is my campsite.

Above left is my first placement of my bear can. it looks lonely way over there. A nice river confluence was right next to the campsite.
I stopped for the night at MM956 beside a river. Made 14 miles today. pretty good for a late start.
