Monday 9th September 2013: Wanda Lake – Muir Pass – Le Conte Canyon
Bad night’s sleep. Rain. Early wake up. Sunrise over Wanda Lake. 2 Coffees. Early leave. 1 hour to Muir Hut. 30 minutes Muir Hut loneliness. Ukulele playing on the doorsteps. HELEN LAKE. Loooong way down. Dizzy. Tired. Need water. Toooo much nature beauty to take in. Give me a break nature. Give me a boring forest. NOT. Aua my heart. GREATNESS OF NATURE! HUMBLE ME. Heart spilling over. Impressive huge rocky mountains, waterfalls, meadows. Me. Dead. Tired. Stumbling down 4000 feet. Knee hurt. Tired. OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOH ROCK MONSTER!!!!!! Energy boost. Funny family pics. 5 more miles to go. WHAT???? O damn. Look down. No. Look those mountains. Sun hiding behind. Rainclouds can’t get over. Dust thrown up. Mystical atmosphere. Knee Auaaaaa… How much longer? Fight! I wanted to do this. Keep going. Thank you trees for the shade. Sooo much beauty! Finally! Camp! Food! Eat! Pee! Poo! Bed! GRATEFUL!!!!
