The middle portion of Long Meadow, looking north, with JMT visible on right. Columbia Finger is the prominent peak. The trail departs the meadow and goes to the east of Columbia Finger. I was tired and dragging (note time in "photo info" seen when cursor is over photo) and looking for a campsite. Mosquitoes were moderate.
Along the JMT through Long Meadow.
First night's camp along verge of Long Meadow just north of where the JMT turns away to the east. Two bearcans worth of food (22+ pounds!), as I was doing the trail nonstop and unresupplied. Stove is wood-burning Sierra Zip, titanium model, and tent is Six Moon Designs Lunar Solo E, which uses my hiking stick for its pole.
