Larry photographs an arch

Elderly Ellen - PCT - Jun 17, 2010 - Recovering
Today we left Lone Pine (via rental car) for some easy recovery days. I've started the treatment for giardia and seem to be slowly improving. I'm able to eat about half what I should. We both need to feel better and put on some weight before we start hiking. So rather than mope around Lone Pine, we plan to relax, camp, and see some sights. Tonight, we're in a Bishop campground. We spent the day doing an easy hike in the Alabama Hills to an arch we'd always wanted to find. Then we drove north to the Manzanar Relocation Camp (National Historic Site). Both were quite enjoyable. I probably won't write a journal entry every day while we're off-trail. I'll let folks know how things progress. Thanks to all for your encouragement! PS Thru-hiker confessions, continued. We went to a laudromat to get our clothes done. It's hot in Lone Pine, so we planned to change into our heavy, hot rain gear in the bathroom at the laundromat. Problem: there was no bathroom! Solution: take the compactor bag that the dirty clothes are stuffed in, hold it up in a corner of the room, and change behind it. We got a few confused looks from the local folks using the washers, but I'm confident our modesty was maintained!
