Lembert Dome 08

Cathedral Peak from Lembert Dome; by Tom Hilton, on Flickr

Very cold. Fourteen degrees in the morning after sunrise. Started back and at the Soda Springs met Mr. St. John’s party. They all visited Mt. Dana yesterday and all the party reached the top. Among the rest were a child, a little girl six years old and a man 69 years old and lame. We then crossed the river and struck onto the Mariposa Trail, a very rough trail indeed. The view of Cathedral Peak from the west is peculiarly fine indeed. Passed several pretty little lakes and finally camped and set fire to a great dense tree which burned very fine. Night very cold and clear.
