June 5, 2011

Start: 632
End: 656

Last night as a group we decided we would wake up at 5:30am to get an earlier start than we had been getting. Our alarms went off in the morning and we woke up. Gangsta rap poked her head out of her tent, followed by Colin, and raved about the pink sky as the sun was about to rise. About five minuets later, gangsta rap looked out again and told everyone they needed to see it. Begrudgingly I opened my tent and looked out to discover the pink clouds of the sunrise along with, not one, but two rainbows. Yes, that's right, a sunrise double rainbow. At that instant we all knew it was going to be a good day.

We hit the trail at 6:30 and hiked all morning taking few breaks. It was pretty easy hiking all day, coupled with the fact that it was cool, made it an ideal day for hiking. We had heard rumors that there would be trail magic at Walker's Pass so we all wanted to get there for lunch to hopefully supplement what we individually had for lunch.

We got to the CG at Walker's Pass at about 2:30pm and there was indeed trail magic! Momma Moab and her son Jayhawk, as well as another lady, were there with cold drinks and little food after 45 other hikers in the past three days had already been through and eaten most of it. Nonetheless we were stoked about the situation and took advantage to the cold beverages.

We got back on the trail at 5 to do a few more miles before setting up camp for the night. We made it about 5 more miles and are currently camped on a ridge where there is a little wind, partially blocked by a few pine trees. Another perfect night for cowboy camping! And two more days to Kennedy Meadows!
