Day 50: Kearsarge Pass Part Two

Started: Bullfrog Lake Trail (788.5)

Ended: Tentsite (789.8)

Total Miles: 1.3 + 9 Bonus Miles

We hitched in from Bishop after an hour of trying. The driver’s name was Fast Eddie, and he took us all the way to the Onion Valley Trail.

The four mile climb with nine days of food made us both very moody.

After three hours, we eventually made it to the top of Kearsarge Pass. There we met an older couple who is slower than we are.

Once we got to the top, we had five miles downhill. Before we knew it, we were on the PCT. We decided to go up to the next campsite. We are 1.3 miles from it, so it looks like we will cross two passes tomorrow and cross the 800 mile mark.
