A few fall color shots

Kinda washed out, but gives you an idea of what's out there.

Trailtrekker06,

Did you by chance go with or meet a guy named Gordon on this trip? He just did Baxter to S. Lake last week as well and said he was going with some others.

Yes, Baff. He went with me. A friend of yours?

Yeah, I met him last month at Bench Lake and hiked out Taboose with him. I don't know him well, but he seems like a great guy.

Yep, nice guy. He was kind to keep me company on this trip, I just wasn't ready to go solo for a week "off season". I know it wasn't his usual wandering XC style, so I'm sure it was hard for him to stay on trail and do only 10 miles a day, so I really appreciated his company. I just really wanted to knock off another section of the JMT while I had the time.
Were you one of the people that gave him a lift back to his vehicle?

I ran into Gordon on the second to last weekend of August at the Horseshoe Meadows parking lot on my way out-he was getting ready to head out to Miter Basin, I believe. We talked for a good 45 minutes. Always fun to meet like-minded people in the outdoors! :D
