Desolation Wilderness, Eldorado National Forest, California.
July 4,5,6, 2008.
Long July 4th weekend vacation, just a relaxing trip to get out of town. Not pushing the boundaries of ultralight or ultramilage or ultraanything.
This was supposed to be my cool-down from running the Western States 100, which was cancelled last weekend due to fires. Instead I was fresh and itching to run.
Climbed from Twin Bridges (6,100’), up Horsetail Falls, and camped 2 nights at Toem Lake (7,650’). Clear and dry weather, low 40’s at night and high 80’s in the day.
