July 14, 2011

Last night we camped on a small, dry patch of ground within the snow covered landscape.  The first part of the day was spent following the East Fork Carson River. There was a small amount of urgency given that I had planned to meet with my cousin David the following day by 9am.

We put in some good hiking time, ate an early dinner by Wolf Creek, and continued hiking until about 9pm when it was dark and we were having trouble finding the trail under the snow.  It was a great night to do a little night hiking with the moon rising just as it was getting dark.  We were more than willing to hike longer, but troubles route finding made out decision for us and we decided to camp instead of continue on, and hike the remaining 7 miles to Ebbetts Pass in the morning.
