Evolution Creek joined with the South Fork of the San Joaquin River and as we passed the Piute Pass Trail we were once again in new territory. After 10 days of hiking through the wilderness we arrived at our resupply point – Muir Trail Ranch. We had sent a bucket of food here. Since the start of our journey our packs had lightened from about 40lbs to under 30lbs. A much lighter load! Working out the resupply only took a couple of hours and then we were off again, with heavier loads, to set-up for Selden Pass.
