Elevation: 4000 ft.at parking lot, 5900 ft at the top of Nevada Falls. We'll reach 6000 ft. on the John Muir Trail for a total elevation change of 2000 ft.

Participants: (26) Bobbie Ables-Smith, Kendra Bibbins, Tracy Crowley, Steve Fotheringham, Dennis, Jacob, Janae, Janie Gallagher & Gina, Josh, Glennes, Rachel & Sierra Golding, Barb Hayes, Debbie Gerhart, Jackie Lederle, Connie & Tom Metz, Don Mulcahy, Dan & Dora Robinson, Stefanie Rochow, Nina Shah, Patrick Wall, Nick & Becky Teberg.
Notes: The rock slide on the John Muir Trail between the Clark Point cut-off and the Mist Trail at the river had originally occurred very early in the morning. There was still movement when they decided to close the trail AFTER Stefanie had already gone through. I don't know if Tracy & Debbie were in the same situation.
