Day 7

Dinner Posted by Picasa

At Tuolumne meadows we resupplied and met up with Laurel and Mary Wagstaff. Laurel, fresh from a trip to Japan, was full of stories and questions about Reed. We got along famously. Newly loaded, we had an easy late afternoon trek up Rafferty creek towards Vogelsang, and spent the night by the creek.
From there, we crossed over Vogelsang pass and descended into a steep granite-sided valley threaded with thin waterfalls, and climbed right back out of it to camp at Bernice Lake. I couldn't resist swimming in it, wide and blue and empty as it was. I shivvered all night in payment. It's always worth it.
