Tahoe Rim Trail

7:00 wake up. Drive to Carson Pass. 9:00 hike 2.9 miles on the PCT through beautiful flower filled meadows to join the Tahoe Rim Trail. Hiked 2.3 miles to Round Lake at 11:00 and jumped in immediately to escape the mosquitos. It was cold, but it felt so good.

We then hiked 2.2 miles to Big Meadow and ate lunch in the breezy mosquito free grass. Crossed the highway and 4.6 miles uphill to Tucker Flat. I hiked back down to get the water pump and pumped water and walked up with Mike while Nancy talked with bikers. Walked another mile or so and camped early at Freel Meadow.

Mike says its 13.5 miles.
