Muir's March: Day 1

The story of Muir's March, in the words of marcher and RHH board member Mark Palley:

Saturday, September 12

We arrived at Tuolumne Meadows Saturday evening. I had joined four other hikers, John, David, Stefen and Rob, in a van that left from San Francisco. Mike Marshall saw us off. Theresa from LA met us in Oakdale. Our drivers for the day were making their first visit to Yosemite – Anthony from Ireland, Allison and Helen from Australia and Bryce of RHH recently arrived from NY. At camp we met up with Pete and our guides, Eden and Patrick. We set up camp and had a lovely dinner. The hikers introduced themselves: John is an Episcopalian Priest in Corona, Theresa is a director of emergency response in Simi Valley, Rob is a software engineer in San Francisco, David is a software engineer in Concord, and Stefen is a muralist. The Australians taught us some local slang, and we taught them the American tradition of smores.
