Sunday, December 7, 2014

Highlights of the sunny but cold day:
  • Meeting a spry 71 year-old with double knee replacements who was completely at ease in the cold weather wearing jeans, sweatshirt and cotton work gloves.
  • Unknowingly shadowing "rbalbs".
  • While descending Redfield, hearing then seeing large flocks of snowgeese overhead.
  • Twilight at Lake Colden.
  • Hiking through Avalanche Pass under a canopy of stars.
  • Hike stats: 20.5 miles, 4900 feet.
  • Hike time: ~11.5 hours.
  • Itinerary: Loj to Marshall (7.6 mi; 2805 ft; 4h 15m), Marshall to Redfield (4.6 mi; 2000 ft; 3h 5m), Redfield to Loj (8.4 mi; 725 ft; 4h 15m).

Early morning at Marcy Dam.
