Glen Pass

623 Kearsarge Pass Trail 1.5 miles past Woods Creek 11.5 miles plus about 3 non PCT miles Glen Pass and Rae Lakes Today was a great day. We got up late because we wanted to be sure that the snow was softened before we got to the pass. We timed it perfectly. The snow was firm but not icy on the way up. We stayed on top for about an hour. There were 14 PCT hikers up there. Songbird even got out her ukelele and played some songs. The way down had lots of snow. We put on our microspikes for added traction but most were doing just fine without them. If it was icier it would have been a different story. Yesterday we started hiking with The Lime Green Jellybean. She did almost all the trail last year. She sprained her ankle 89 miles from the end and couldn't finish. So this year she is doing the whole thing again. Last year the group she as hiking with had a daily swim. So yesterday we jumped into the first lake out of Independence. Today it was the middle Rae Lake. It was freezing but of course felt good after I was out and warmed up. This swim-a-day club isn't anything I would do on my own but it's pretty fun. We layed around for 2 hours before we got back on the trail. I'm cowboy camping tonight and there are mosquitos....should be interesting to see how that goes. Love, Why Not
