First creek crossings in the Sierras

written Jun 6, 2017 @ 01:16 AM after hiking 12.77 miles

Today, we reached our first major creek that we needed to cross. I say "creek" because it's called Rock Creek.

However, it was the most raging creek I've seen. Let alone crossed while balancing on a log.

After that, it was onward to the top of a ridge, where we took a nice long siesta while we waited for the north face to soften so that we wouldn't have to put on spikes to descend.

Nothing special -- just crossing a snowy forest.

The second creek crossing of the day -- even sketchier than the first!

After that, it was a second sketchy log crossing and an early bedtime because we want to summit Mt Whitney tomorrow morning!
