Today we are committed to hiking to the last campsite before South Lake Tahoe. We could hike all the way, but we would be coming in late, and we don’t want to pay for an extra night at the hotel.
We stopped at the Carson Pass Information Center for their trail magic. The biggest piece of magic was a scale. Since I started training I have lost 70 pounds! I’m not done yet. I have 20 more to loose, but hiking has done some amazing things for me.
We’re going to zero in South Lake Tahoe. I will replace my shoes after 400 miles. I also need to replace my shirt and shorts. My shirt is way too big now, and my shorts have holes in them.
Rest is critical to keep pushing these miles.
We set up camp early and are enjoying a relaxing night.
