Mosquitoes continued to be vicious today. I had to fill water from a lake, and walked at least 20 meters away before filtering. Walked most of the day without seeing any others. Chatted with two German hikers during the final miles. I was quite surprised to discover that we’d be reaching Tuolumne Meadows (Yosemite) so soon, which we reached an hour before dark. The final miles are just wide open swaths of meadows. Reunited with friends in front of the Tuolumne Meadows convenience store and then we wended our way to a large campsite area designated for hikers.
