Slept so well at Squaw Lake last night. Didnt wake up until 5, which is late for me. Lauren got ready in record time, faster than me today. We were both excited to be headed to Reds Meadow for burgers, beer, and free hot spring showers.
We made great time as we went up and down for what seemed like all
day. We forded Virginia Lake as I did in 06'. It did take some
convincing for Lauren to follow me. I had to remind her that her trail
name is Groler Bear, a mix of Grizzly and Polar bear. She did it and it
made great footage. Which reminds me, we are making a dance video.
Dancing from Kennedy Meadows to Canada.
We made it to Reds Meadow at 4 pm. We ate burgers, drank beer, and
are stealth camping at the closed campground. The road to Mammoth is
opening tomorrow. A big windstorm came through this winter with 150 mph
winds. It knocked over thousands of trees. Luckily the store and
restaraunt opened for us hikers. The free hot spring showers were
condemed by the state of California. So we washed in the cold creek, and
life is still very good. Should be at the big shin dig in Bridgeport
for the fourth of July.
By the way. Every day I spend with Lauren, I seem to fall more in love with her. Life is good.
