1. No quantity or number; naught; the figure 0.
  2. A day in which no miles are hiked.

From Mono Hot Springs to Vermilion Valley Resort, it's only 6 miles, which means one thing: sleeping in! We didn't get started until, like, 7am. It was glorious.

The walk in, however, was not.


Oh goodness it never ends.

However, after six miles of pretty much just dirt roads, I saw a wonderful sign:


"Freeway" okay sure.

After that, we entered the amazing resort and I totally forgot to take pictures, so I'll just list some highlights:

  • cheeseburger lunch
  • pie
  • nap
  • decided to skip Mammoth and push to Tuolumne in one shot
  • huge salad for dinner
  • 4am trail time tomorrow, so early bed
