To View Mountains: Day 8 – Silver Pass

 

The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness.” – John Muir

Saturday, July 18, 2015

Amongst all things which have caused me to slip into the coma of a long nights sleep, few surpass hiking 15+ miles and climbing steep trails above 10,000 feet. To the point where waking seems like a chore.  But a long nights rest makes for a long days hike, and that’s what we did.

The sun made it’s presence known.  Along the way, Squaw Lake preened and glistened at me, a temptation I could not overcome.  So off comes the pack and clothing, and in I went.  The icy water washed over me; a refreshment like no other.  We hiked onward until we found a welcoming spot at Mono Creek, where the sunset embraced us and we it.  As the food disappeared, the fire appeared, and with it’s soft crackles and warm glow, we slipped into yet another night’s rest.

A 12 mile day.
