We traveled through meadows and across streams. After we crested at Dick’s Pass, we started down a fairly steep snow slope. I fell at one point and ended up on my back with my head going down the slope. It was unsettling. I didn’t want it to affect my speed going across future slopes but I think it may have. K&T had been traveling in these conditions for over a month. I felt like the nube. I had only been on snow once in the past 3 years.
As we approached Lake Richardson, our camping spot for the night, the mosquito population increased exponentially. Thankfully K&T had a bottle of somewhat natural bug repellent. Travis kindled a fire, we made a bunch of KD (Kraft dinner), Kelsey did a bit of blogging then passed out. I have to say I was impressed. She is writing all her blog posts on her phone. Incredible.
