We’re in Bishop today picking up our resupply boxes from the post office, doing laundry, eating lots, and using internet at the Library. Coming down from the mountains after a long time always feels like cultre shock, and this time is no different. We have become accustomed to the wild and it’s suprising to be able to smell laundry detergent on hikers at the trailhead from 40 ft away.
So far this portion of our journey has beeen a great success. Yesterday we found and repeated six historic USGS photographs, crossed a 12,000 foot pass, and traveled 8 miles off trail. All after a relaxing morning and we still had plenty of time to stretch, write, draw, and relax watching sunset on Mt. Humphreys when we got into camp.
The next section between Bishop and Mammoth is a section of the Sierra none of us have traveled before and we are excited to get into the rythm of moving every day again. Soon you will also get to see the results of our travels as we process and put together the photos and viedo.
