Mosquitos And Altitude



I hit 10,000 feet for the first time today as the trail ascended a beautiful series of meadows and ridges, with snow-capped peaks rimming the horizon. With a heavy pack, I was glad to do 15 miles and camp with about a dozen other hikers by Death Canyon tonight.

Also for the first time, I hit annoying mosquitos this morning. They’ll only get worse as summer progresses, but hopefully I’ll be too high for them the rest of this week. The trail hits 11,000 feet tomorrow, where the snow pack is still continuous; should be interesting!

    Impressive stuff you’re doing! How much weight do you figure you’ve lost? Not that you had much to lose in the first place. Stay safe.
