John Muir Trail 2013

Day 5 - Devils Postpile: Trinity Lakes to Deer Creek (13 mi, 1730 ft relief). A curious mule deer fawn shows no fear of a backpacker. Today I will hike through Devils Postpile National Monument, a geologic pilgrimage of sorts, and resupply with 6 days of food at Reds Meadow, where I have mailed a package.
