Start: South Lake/Bishop Pass trailhead
End: Palisade Creek
Elevation gain/loss: 2772/4177
After getting a ride to the trailhead with CJ, we started out at 6:45am, hiking up Bishop Pass. We had good weather for the morning, and made it over the Pass and stopped for lunch at the Dusy Basin lake. As we wrapped up lunch, there was a rain shower; we put on packcovers and kept going. It died down after a while and we continued descending towards the JMT. After we intersected with the JMT, it rained again and we could hear thunder in the distance. We made another 4-5 miles before setting up camp for the night at 6:15pm. Much of our clothing was still damp when we went to bed.
