Base of Mather Pass to Bishop Pass Trail. 15 miles, 831 miles total.

I had planned to get over the pass before dark, but just as I got to the bottom of the pass at about 6:00 pm, my bear vault fell off my pack and landed on the ground near a bare spot (no snow!), and it wasn't too difficult to move a few rocks and make a soft area for my tent. It was like a sign saying "camp here tonight!"

I'm well above the tree line, and I think I'm at about 10,000 feet, so it's going to be cold night, but at least I'm not sleeping on snow.
