No major snow so far...

written Jun 4, 2017 @ 10:49 PM after hiking 18.90 miles

Tonight, for the second night in a row, we're camping above 10,000 feet. I don't know why, but that's neat to me.

It's been surprisingly good hiking -- not only have we not hit any major snow (no crampons required so far!) but the higher elevation hasn't really impacted anyone too badly. There's the obvious "this is harder to climb" effects, but no altitude sickness, headaches, dizziness, etc. Let's hope this keeps up!

And now, some pictures from today that I want to share just because:

My totally awesome hammock setup
