Time to regroup

The events since my last post are a blur but I will update my journal when I have time to sort it out. I am currently in Bishop headed home. Everyone I was hiking with left the trail at Walker Pass. We all agreed that the conditions in the Sierra required mountaineering skills and gear that we lacked. We also agreed that we want to hike the Sierra when we can enjoy the experience without risking our lives. I had planned to hike 50 miles north of the pass and get off at Kennedy Meadows but the weather changed abruptly. We woke up to rain and wind that changed to snow. And the forecast is for more winter conditions above 6000 feet. No thanks! It is still early in the hiking season and we are all hopeful that conditions will improve and we can resume our hike together. Until then I am happy to be with Barb, getting some rest and get my beer level back in balance! Happy trails!
