LAUNCH

Zach and I left the Eastern Sierra Visitors Center at 5pm with our permit in hand. I had expected to be grilled by the Ranger about Wilderness Regulations, LNT Principles, etc. but he simply issued the permit and said "have a great trip!" After a stop at Subway in Lone Pine for dinner, we headed up the road to Horseshoe Meadows. We made a few last minute gear decisions, then hit the trail towards Cottonwood Pass a little after 6:30pm. After a few miles of gentle climbing, we came to Cottonwood Pass - - up and over we went. Just after the junction with the PCT, right at dusk, we found a campsite for our first night out. Launch complete!
