June 13, 2011

Start: 751
End: 766

Today was a pretty typical day. As usual the views were amazing and we really started getting into the heart of the High Sierra.

The mileage above does not take into account the extra miles we did from Crabtree Meadow to Guitar Lake on the side trail to Mt Whitney. As we made our way up the valley the views just got better and better. I even spotted my first marmot! When we arrived at the lake a little after 7pm, we set up camp and made dinner. As we were eating and enjoying the scenic surrounding mountains and frozen Guitar Lake, the nearly full moon popped up over one of the ridges. It was huge! This is a good thing too because we plan to wake up at 12:50am to hike to the top of Mt Whitney by sunrise. Should be an amazing day tomorrow!
