Quick post to let you know I’m still on the trail.  Actually through most of the Sierra: Donahue Pass, Island, Silver, ,Selden, Muir, Mather, Pinchot. Just Forester to go.  But I get ahead of myself.

Subfreezing night joined by friend Corey, then snow through Aloha Lake, an impulsive hitch to South Lake Tahoe for a motel and food, deer hunters and a game warden, Ebbetts Pass, Sonora Pass, and a final 26 miles to reach Tuolumne Meadows in time for the June Lake Beer Festival. With an infected toe, somehow the nail bed of my left big toe got blistered. Whew.  An amazingly beautiful stretch of trail.

We spent a triple zero in Mammoth Lakes!  The beer festival was fun, good beer, good food, good friends Noreen, Vicky, Joan and my sis Dogwater. I got antibiotics for my toe, a winter weight shirt, new hiking sticks to replace the one I splinted with tent stakes and overall rested up for the big passes of the High Sierra.
