Today is up and over Muir Pass, which turned out to be the snowiest of them all, but my favorite. Go figure, because the last time I hiked through the Sierra Muir Pass was my least favorite. Near the top of the pass I was all alone without a hiker in sight, and the wind was calm and the earth was completely quiet. I couldn’t see any trail because the snow took it all and I felt like John Muir up there.
