Blue Sky Up and Over Kearsarge Pass

Back on the Trail

Had breakfast around 7:30am, then headed to the Post Office to pick up our packages. We spent a while in our room sorting them out and organizing what to send to VVR. Finally, around 10am, Frank gave us a ride toward the trailhead. Unfortunately, he apparently isn't good with heights, so he ended up leaving us about 6 miles before the trailhead. We waited on the side of the road in the sun for about an hour and a half before a car came by and took us to the trailhead. From there, we hiked back up to Kearsarge Pass with Eddie and Meeghan, then back down to the PCT. From there we ascended to Glen Pass (11978 ft) through some gorgeous scenery. The descent was pretty hard core...very steep, lots of slushy snow and basically no path. We picked our way down, refound the trail and kept going. I got to glissade down a little hill, which was fun. We cruised down to Rae Lakes, which was breathtakingly beautiful, then through some meadows. We saw marmots and deer, which was exciting. We passed Arrowhead Lake as the sun was setting and set up camp at Dollar Lake a little before 9pm.
