Day 49: Old Friends

Memories from June 8

I woke up late today which was very much in the spirit of the day. I spent the morning drying gear and enjoying the view. I only need about 9 miles to get set up for Pinchot Pass tomorrow. Here’s the view when I woke up. The Rae Lakes were a good place to take a nearo.

When I finally did hit the trail a little before noon, the walk down the valley was great.

The were a number of interesting stream crossings.

I passed mile 800.

Though there were two markers.

The day ended with a climb up a valley with a thundering river.

Today I ran across a bunch of people who I haven’t seen for over 600 miles. They’re all hiking in a big group of about 12 people. I camped with them and had the third campfire of my trip.

That’s right. S’mores roasting with an ice axe.
