Today is the longest day of the year here in the northern hemisphere and boy do my feet feel it. My socks have suddenly started wearing out all over and it means a lot more rubbing on my skin, which hurts. Getting up to Muir Pass was tough. Not that there was any snow worth mentioning, it was just a long way up. Helen Lake, just before the top, was still mostly frozen. Standing on the rocky edge and looking at my feet it was so clear it was hard to tell where the water started.
