To help you project into the mood here are some shots ... let the imagination fly!
This may not look high but that light line near his elbow is Wahoe Lake... way down there! ... we are probably at least at the 5500 ft elevation.
This is the top of the trail... someone bought the land and fenced it off... even put a gate with a lock ... well, it is the end of the day.. sun is setting ... so we will wait until the next time to go around the fence :-)
How can we not love the big tree country high in the hills... every turn of the trail is awesome.
