Tahoe Rim Trail Map

Day Eight

I hit the trail at about 9:30 AM after sleeping in a bit after last nights adventure and filtering water and washing clothes in the lake. The first eight or so miles was among about a half dozen lakes which were the clearest most awesome lakes I have seen. Most of the days elevation was in the first several miles in which was the climb up to Dicks pass/peak which was the second to last major peak for my TRT trip (Twin Peak remains in the morning) and came to about 2,000 of the days 3,000 feet of ascent. For lunch I stopped at the last of the lakes (Middle Velma) which was my favorate as it was spotted with many small islands. I also filter water for the second half of the day. The rest of the day can be discribed as 'trees' and not much else. Pretty much flat trail and trees. I stopped at the quite dry bear creek (all 3 of my potential water sources for tonight ended up dry - I have enough left for tonight though and there are 2 potential sources in the first 5 miles come morning) and set camp about 7:30 PM. Also my right ankle was quite fine this morning so that was great! One day and 20 miles left :/ a little sad as this has been a great trip...
