Bears and Gatorade

A quick peek skyward showed no stars and a peek at my watch said it was 5am, time to get up. First breakfast consists of a Cliff bar and a Nutrigrain. Next it's out of the sleeping bag, put it in its stuff sack and the put most of my stuff in my pack.

After setting the pack outside the tent on go the shoes. Any remaining stuff is removed from the tent and the tent is taken down. Everything is then placed in the pack. A short pause for my morning constitutional and down the trail you go.

A typical morning.

Besides the hike/get water routine not much happened until a bear crossed our path just before Mosquito Lake outlet. It was a young bear maybe 4 years old. Definitely the highlight of the day. I was too slow with the camera.

Many people were out on the trail. It's a very popular area.

By early evening we hit a road crossing and Chief's wife left an 8 pack of Gatorade by the trailhead. What a surprise. Thank you!

Tonight we're camped at the top of a climb. No mosquitoes but every other form of insect known to man is present.

Nite.

The past is for reminiscing, the present for living and the future for anticipating. Don't lament any of it.
