Dorthy Lake Pass. Two fords that required taking shoes and socks off. Yogi’s guide was right. Mosquito hell.

Howly and Fancyfeet reached our campsite goal for the night before me, and it was a good feeling when I rounded a corner and could just make out a roaring fire about a 1/4 mile ahead of me. They had also kindly gotten extra water from the previous source. We all ate vegan chili that I had brought from home. There was a large tent nearby with a couple giggling and making other joyous sounds and we thru-hikers had fun looking at each other like old curmudgeons, marveling beneath our breaths how they could possibly have such cheery dispositions and secretly plotting to undue their tent poles. But we behaved, hehe.

  1. Woohoo! Way to go. Keep up the good work. I am enjoying the blog. Not to give bad news but the bugs have been horrible here in Nebraska this year (mosquitoes, ticks, etc) hopefully it isn’t the same on the trail for you.

  2. Hey Husk – Way to go! Congrats on the great progress. It’s been so hot here that the mosquitos will all be fried by the time you hit Oregon. Stay hydrated and – I think I mentioned this before – EAT LOTS!
