aka PCT day 55: June 13th 2015: Rosalie Lake – Reds Meadow – Deer Creek. Ca. 15ml
We hike down the 9 miles to Reds. It’s beautiful, but also a bit boring. We’re fast but, thinking of the food at the mule’s café, it feels not fast enough. There are thousands of mosquitoes at Gladys Lake and the last miles to Devils Postpile seem to take aaaages. We still get there at 10:30 am. We start resupplying out of the hikers box and two men come to chat with us and give us food. Awesooome! Now we don’t have to go down into Mammoth for a resupply but can just resupply here. We buy a few extra things in the store and are done. We eat burgers at the Mule’s Cafe (yummm) and then hikers start coming in. Spacekitty, Ace, You again. We hike out through the rainbow fire area and meet Beer Goddess, Hawaii, Little Bear, Aquanaut…. It’s great to see them back. Still I feel like I’ve seen enough people for today. Plus it’s damp and hot and I just wanna get to camp. We hike on till Deer Creek where we put up the tent and have a lazy dinner. O I have such good memories of this place. It’s good to be back!
