Deer grazing

Deer Meadow

Got a late start this morning due to a ton of condensation on both tents and on most everything else. Jingle Bell got her line tangled up on a limb last night trying to hang a bear bag. Took some time using a long heavy tree limb (found on ground) to persuade the line to let go of the tree. Had a lovely 7.7 mile downhill and saw a few deer along the way. It started to get really hot mid-afternoon and of course we had 3.4 miles of uphill to go. Jingle Bell was really suffering from the heat and developed a pain on the right hand side below the ribcage. It was pretty concerning. She thought it was a combination of the heavy pack and heat. I had hoped to make it to the Lower Palisades Lake at 10,616 ft in preparation to cross Mathers Pass at 12,100 ft. We made it to Deer Meadows along with the Virginians. This means we have two hard areas to climb tomorrow the Golden Staircase and Mather Pass.
