For the last 8 days Tulip and I hiked 80 miles of the John Muir Trail with a few friends, mostly above 10,000 ft. He took up a familiar place in my pack and kept me warm on cold nights.
We all loved the little stone hut at the top of Muir Pass:
And Tulip even made friends with some very relaxed marmots. Can you spot two in this picture (below)?
