Not much to say about today, easy on-trail hiking with good weather!

Journal Entry:  Clouds disappeared by evening and morning was still cloudless.  Puffy clouds started building late morning, but nothing threatening.  Headed down out of Dusy Basin, long drop to 8800 ft. where we met the JMT.  Couple of miles up LeConte Canyon to Big Pete Meadow where we are camped west of the meadow.  Continue to see quite a few people on the trails, as expected.  Tomorrow’s goal is Helen Lake, 2300 feet uphill from here and back into the alpine!
