Thanks, Sally, for the ride

Leaving Lone Pine

618 Lone Pine - Trail Pass Crabtree Meadow 21.6 miles plus 2 1/2 miles to get to the PCT 767.2 total miles A lot happened today but I'm almost too tired to write about it. As promised, Sally drove us the 22 very windy miles to the trailhead. That meant she spent 2 hours of her time. It was very much appreciated. We didn't see any other cars drivng up there so I'm not sure how we would have gotten up there. We hiked to our first alpine lake... Chicken Spring Lake. We just had to jump in.... The heads did not go in! It was cold but felt so good. It was barely warm enough to sit on the granite rocks to dry off. Today was absolutely gorgeous. Early clouds but they mostly cleared up. It was the nicest weather day in a long time. We could see Whitney from the southwest. It looked very different than from the east side. I've been up Whitney 3 times but always from Whitney Portal which is on the east side. Because I've been up before it hasn't been a big priority for me to climb it this trip. But once I saw it I knew I was going up. So we had to put in some big miles today to get in position to climb it tomorrow. It will be a 17 mile round trip. Hopefully the weather will be nice enough in the morning. The views today were unbelievably beautiful. I feel so lucky to be out here. Love, Why Not
