The mid-Sierras

written Jun 21, 2017 @ 10:25 AM after hiking 14.84 miles

Today was the first day that we hiked what I have done to refer to as the "mid-Sierras" -- below 10,000 feet. It was interesting leaving the snow, but I honestly think I prefer the snow. When things aren't frozen, everything is wet and muddy and hot.

Some raging creek -- good thing we had a bridge!

Not a bad place to eat Fig Newtons!

I guess i should get used to bare rock -- there's a lot of it coming

That's a "9" -- the 900-mile marker is buried!

We improvised, though!

Not a bad day.
