We hear about the Perseid Meteor Shower. It will peak during the night of
the 11th. We discuss, wether it would be a good idea to try to summit Mt. Whitney on the evening of the 11th to watch the meteor shower from the top of the world.
We will see how the next couple of days go and make a decision once we see the weather at Mt. Whitney. We cross Pinchot Pass and instead of camping at the Woods Creek crossing with its hanging bridge we hike another 2.5 miles to Baxter Creek. There we fish and have again trout for dinner.
