Yosemite Hike Day 6

Emerick Lake to the Tuolomne Meadows Visitor Center.  LAst day of the journey for me today.  Hiked up and over Tuolomne Pass and descended in to the junction point.  At this particular junction of the trail, a left took you to the TMeadows Vis. Cntr, and a right took you on to the JMT.  What another awesome experience - talking to hikers coming off of and leaving to go onto the JMT!  Promised dad I would wait for him at this junction, so I had a couple of hours to kill.  Dropped pack and did some hill repeats up and down the last descent to the juction point.  

After Kevin reached the junction, he went on to the visitor center.  About 90 minutes later, Dad caught up, and it started to rain... stuff got wet for first time all week.  we hiked in to the Finish line.  Car parked at the parking lot and Kevin was sitting in there waiting for us.  Lots of great pictures taken by Kevin and my Dad, but, I took no camera. 

Great hike and trip concluded.  We crushed icecream, and double burgers at the grill, cleaned up a little bit, and then hopped in the car for a 5 hour drive back to Fresno out of the park.  Unfortunately, a wildfire covered most ofthe Western part of the park in smoke and I did not get to see most of popular sites, such as ElCap, Half Dome, etc.  Other than the mosquitos and the wildfire, I couldn't have asked for a much better trip.
