Spent my 4th on the Muir Trail, resupplying my very very best friend on her
First, I couldn't believe the amount of traffic on the trail. It's like the
backpacker superhighway out there right now. I passed a group of hikers
about every 15 minutes.
There was this one funny moment, crossing Evolution Creek, where
everything was just too surreal. Stereotype one: as soon as I stepped into
the water, all the mosquitoes in the Sierra came out to bite me. Second:
there was a stupid note from a PCT thru-hiker who wanted to save us all from
Evolution Creek. "Water up to your chest! Run away!" I crumpled up the note
and moved to stereotype 3: A couple of PCT thru-hikers who would not even
say "hi" to me as they ran off to make more miles.
Found a note in the hut on Muir Pass from "Blisterfree." I was only 2 days
behind him and would have liked to meet the man.
Finally, I bagged three more 14ers on the way out and now have only 3 left
to bat for the cycle this summer. Anyone out there want to belay me on the
top section of Starlight Peak?
