      When my wife and I started JMT our trip ended there six days later.
      We were moving very slow as our packs were quite heavy. When my 10
      year old Son, a friend and I did JMT my friend left us there due to
      knee problems. We had left most of our food at Red's Mdw and only took
      enough from YV to get there so we moved a bit faster. We were there
      in five and a half days and had stopped early in Tuolumne Mdw. A few
      years later my friend and I did it again for a week trip but started
      at TM. We took a couple of days off and a couple of half days and
      moved slow. I think it is a very good trip, good scenery and good
      fishing. It is easy to do in a week and give you plenty of time to
      look around. I would do it again in a heartbeat.
