With its mesmerizing beauty
JMT DAY 19 - BISHOP PASS
While spending another night at the same campsites in Le Conte Canyon, our plan for the day was to climb up to Bishop Pass and meet up my friends who would bring us our resupplies.
While going up, we hiked through Dusy Basin, and it completely surprised me with its mesmerizing beauty. The little lakes spread across the basin were just so pretty that I kept telling myself that I would come back here as soon as I had a chance.
My friends Maddie, with whom I did the High Sierra Trail together, and Cat, another hiking friend, supposedly came in the day before via South Lake and camped at Long Lake. It was their plan to explore the Inyo National Forest side of the Pass and spend another day down there.
I was up here earlier back in July to do a dry run for my friends since neither of us had never been there before. I had a great time and, of course, I turned that opportunity into a photography trip.
By the way, there was cell phone signal for Verizon at the pass, so my buddy Henry got on the phone and spoke with his family. No such luck with AT&T.
