Went to Vogelsang high camp thursday. Started at home at 438am (Yosemite valley next to the Ahwahnee hotel) and took the Mist trail up to top of Nevada falls,, then past little yo' valley, to Merced lake, to Lewis creek trail, up over Vogelsang pass (got to top at noon) and down to Fletcher creek trail, back to merced lake and then Nevada falls again, to jmt n back down to my place. a little over 41 miles, Started at 438am, got home about 8 (was a 2 mile walk home from where i stopped my garmin mapping) 13hrs 9 min of moving-time, 15hr -somethin total.  Im posting my garmin link as always, right below here, it has the map, speed time etc. elevation change was a lil over 27000ft 13+ up. 13+ down...Anyways, was really fun! hadnt done 40 yet this year, ide only been doing 25-30mile runs every thursday or friday these last few weeks (those are my days off work, so i do my long run of the week one of those 2 days), even runnin to tuolumne was only like 35mi. so getting in a 40+ finally was nice,  anyways, note to other runners, the 2nd half of Fletcher creek trail sux ass for making any kind of good time, the trail's a mess, if ide known i woulda run back on Lewis tr. It took me a long time to get 2 miles on that stoopid trail  it was so bad, not runable at all.  Walkin it sucked too.

heres the Garmin map link
