Today was a fairly easy day, although mostly uphill.  We had slept at 9000 feet which helped acclimation and neither of us had any altitude issues.

Journal Entry:  Drove to Bishop yesterday and stayed at Willow campground at 9000 feet.  This morning started at 8am on Bishop Pass Trail.  Reached the pass before 2pm, passing many hikers and one horse train heading in.  Dropped down into Dusy Basin and camped at the highest large lake.  Puffy clouds all day, not threatening at all.  Tomorrow we drop into LeConte Canyon, then north on the JMT to Big Pete Meadow.
