In the morning, I was feeling better but still not great. So I got a late start and around 11:30 or so I headed back to Gem Pass and then followed the trail towards Parker Pass. I looked at the stream and thought about how the hike out might go and took a nap under some trees.
The trail was all snowed in and pretty rough going, the parts that weren't snow covered with squishy with mud.
I met two hikers coming down the pass at around 6:30 and stopped and talked to them for a little while. They were heading towards Ritter, the trail closure was going to make it harder for them to get there.
At around 7:45 I was finally off the snow and onto the rock switchbacks going up the pass. I found where water was flowing though the boulders and filled by water bottles. I hiked over the top of the pass and setup camp on the north side where I could see the mountains to the north and there was a wind block made of boulders.
After taking some sunset pictures and hearing lots of jet airplanes go by I went to sleep.
