In the morning we were still hiking on the JMT alternate, passing along several small lakes and seeing many hikers going southbound. During one of our climbs, we came across an older lady, who seemed to be in the verge of panic. She said she hiked ahead of he husband a long while ago, but that he was a much faster hiker, and he hadn't passed her yet. She asked if we saw him ahead of her, which we hadn't. She was really worried about him.

The climb down was also snow-less, and quite easy. We finally reached the Lyell Fork, and were happy to see that there was an easy path across, and no actual fording needed.
We found a nice camp spot here for our tents, and have just finished dinner. Many other hikers are also camped around here, some going north and some going south.
