Richard Judd was in Yosemite national park on 25th July 2021 with a hiking partner. Judd is 69 years old, 5-foot-11 and 150 pounds. Richard Judd was wearing a blue shirt, grey pants and was using white trekking poles. He was carrying a navy blue day pack.
Richard and his hiking partner had set up a camp near Lower Merced Pass Lake and the day Judd disappeared the pair had set off on a day hike to Red Peak Pass. It’s reported their vehicle was parked at the Quartz Mountain Trailhead.
When I noticed this, my ears pricked up. I thought of Sandra Johnsen Hughes. Remember her? She crashed her car in the same area and spent a month roaming the same woods.
