Day 11

We began the day with a 3,500 climb past Palisades Lake on our way towards Mather Pass (12,100). There were a lot of clouds, but the weather never worsened. We passed many hikers and ended up sharing the pass with about nine others during our snack break. We got great views of  Split and  Mt. Sill. We hiked down the So. Fork of the Kings River, along a very stark landscape, surrounded by tall peaks. After another 600 climb we made camp at lovely Lake Marjorie and were now back on schedule.
