Dan's Outside

I go, I see, I do, I walk, I think, I like…

– (After injuring my toe at the start of the month, I had to forego any hiking before this trip.) The annual Talusdancers pack trip, though a rather easy and short one this year.

Day 1: Drive over Tioga Pass to Big Pine Creek for trailhead barbecue and car camping.

Day 2: Backpack up to Lake Two.

Day 3: Backpack to Lake Four.

Day 4: Hang at Lake Four. Short early morning walk to Summit Lake.

Day 5: Day hike to Lakes Six and Seven.

Day 6: Hike out and drive home.
