Solid day of hiking today.
Slept in until almost 0800. Arrived late into camp last night and crashed hard. Haven't slept that soundly in quite some time.
Out by 0900, walked straight through until after 1200. Stopped for water, had a lunch stop as well, not something I usually do. Rehydrated some rice, and did a bit of trail math to determine timeframes and distances for approximate dates of finishing up on trail.
Such a beautiful day today. The elevation is getting more dramatic, but then so is the scenery. Will be arriving at Kennedy Meadows South tomorrow, mile seven hundred, and the unofficial gateway to the Sierra.
Camped just outside of KMS this evening. Short walk in tomorrow morning, where I'll grab my bear canister, micro spikes, a hot meal, and be on my way into higher elevation, snow, and colder temperatures.
