Fish Tacos

Flying day

We Flew from RDU to Reno today. Dan, my husband and myself. We are finally starting our big adventure. A month set aside to hike the John Muir trail. This will be the longest either of us have been out at one time backpacking. I saw a dust devil blow across the parking lot while we waited for the bus to take us into Lee Vining. It felt like being in a western movie. We stayed the night at the El Mono hotel in Lee Vining. A quaint little place off the highway with a little cafe. For dinner, we walked down to the Whoa Nelly Deli. It is a restaurant attached to a gas station that has great food, prices and is busy, busy....we ate fish tacos and salad with huge blackberries. After dinner we went back to our room and sat out on our patio and sipped a few local beers that we picked up. The weather was very warm but windy. A hummingbird swooped down over us as we sat.
