Pacific Crest Trail Map

Richardson Lake

Had quite a little experience with another chipmunk last evening while I was reading my book before bed. I glanced outside and saw this chipmunk running full tilt towards mytent, launched itself from a rock about eight feet away, slams into the top of my tent shaking it violently, jumps again up into the tree above me, and proceeds to chatter nonstop like it was all my fault. I immediately looked in the direction it came from thinking that something big was chasing it, but nada, nothing.

Got ant earlier start this morning as we had a hill climb over Dick's Pass. Arrived at the top and oohed and aahed over the vision of multiple lakes down below. We passed by Upper, Middle, and Lower VELMA Lakes (there ya go Forget-Me-Not, three lakes names after you!) We should have gotten more water at the last lake as it was an extremely dry 7.5 mile uphill/downhill event to the Richardson Lake. Most of the afternoon terrain was in the woods but boy, was it hot. We were so happy to see the lake at 3:45pm! It was a 15 miler today and our feet were pretty sore and tired.

As we were getting ready to make dinner, we were completely surprised to see Richard walking towards us. We haven't seen him since just before Sonora Pass. We got caught up on our travels and enjoyed sharing stories.

Critters sighted: deer, lizards, chipmunks (of course), butterflies
