Tahoe mountains

written Jul 9, 2017 @ 03:18 AM after hiking 13.40 miles

After being dropped off back at Echo Lake, I resumed hiking. This is my first time really hiking through the Tahoe mountains, and they're really pretty. I know I say that a lot, but it applies to a lot!

I even ran into a skier, which didn't give me a good feeling about the trail ahead of me.

That must've been fun, though.

Around Aloha Lake, the snow picked up, but it thankfully wasn't bad.

I'm sure it's much prettier than this in most Julys, but not this year...

And then this happened!

1,100 miles!

It's now been 300 miles since I've seen a milestone marker. Oh well, I won't let me stop that from marking the occasion -- maybe 1,200 will be visible. I ended the day on Dicks Pass, which was of course pretty.
