And that was that. This was the southern most point on the JMT and the end of a long journey. I met some wonderful people along the way and made a good friend in Steve. What I witnessed out on the trail will stay with me forever. The amazing sunsets, glowing peaks, the crystal clear lakes and rivers, the powerful waterfalls, the brilliant starlit night skies and all of the amazing wildlife. None will ever be forgotten. Some folks say a trip like this changes them forever. I still haven't figured out if it changed me but what I do know is that it has enriched my life more than I can say.
