Rubylocks & Calf showed up about 6:30 am as we finished our dbl mocha lattes in the high woods, by the big boulders that served as our cooking shelf.
We crossed several passes today. Some close to 11000 ft elevation -- and some had views of the High Sierras including Mt Whitney!

Looking for water, we came to a large sandy flats with large foxtail pines spaced here & there, and some down dead trunks. Tired!! We plopped down for supper and soon made the decision to call it. It meant big miles tomorrow. The Donald (from Vancouver) & Last Minute (currently from Hawaii) dropped by as we lay in our bags cowboy camping in a wind. Then they were off & we snoozed despite mosquitos.
