JMT

The John Muir Trail is a long-distance trail in the Sierra Nevada mountain range of California, passing through Yosemite, Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks. From the northern terminus at Happy Isles in Yosemite Valley and the southern terminus located on the summit of Mount Whitney, the Trail’s length is 213.7 miles, with a total elevation gain of approximately 47,000 feet. For almost all of its length, the trail is in the High Sierra backcountry and wilderness areas. For about 160 miles, the trail follows the same footpath as the longer Pacific Crest Trail. It is named after John Muir, the famous naturalist.

The JMT is 213.7 miles long. From its northern terminus in Yosemite Valley, the trail runs southeast, passing south of Half Dome and then on to Tuolumne Meadows. From Tuolumne Meadows the trail turns south, running parallel to the main range of the Sierra Nevada, through Yosemite National Park, Inyo and Sierra national forests (including the John Muir Wilderness and Ansel Adams Wilderness), passing through Devils Postpile National Monument, Kings Canyon National Park, and ending on Mount Whitney in Sequoia National Park. From the southern terminus of the JMT at the summit of Mount Whitney, an additional 10.6-mile hike on the Mount Whitney Trail is required to reach the nearest trailhead at Whitney Portal, thus making an end-to-end traverse of the JMT effectively 221 miles.

The Palisade Glacier is a glacier located on the northeast side of the Palisades within the John Muir Wilderness. The glacier descends from the flanks of four mountain peaks over 14,000′ in elevation of which North Palisade 14,242′ is third highest peak in the Sierra Nevada Range.

The cirque containing the Palisade Glacier has a history of thousands of years of glaciation. The modern glacier attained its last maximum extent during the Little Ice Age, between 250 and 170 years ago – a period also known as the Matthes glaciation in the Sierra Nevada.

The glacier is under a mile long and half mile wide. It is located between 13,400 and 12,000; elevation and moves at a rate of 20 feet per year, although it is also retreating. Palisade Glacier is one of the few glaciers in California that terminates in a proglacial lake dammed by its former moraine and the lake is turquoise colored from the glacial powder suspended in the water. The Big Pine Lakes below the glacier are also the same color.
