As we all know, dreams don’t come true without a lot of failure. ~from the movie “Walt before Mickey”
Deer Lakes to Red’s Meadow
Mammoth Crest * Red’s Meadow * town of Mammoth
Weeeeeellllllllll…….you would think 3 hikers that have been using map and compass hiking over yonder and dale would not get lost on a trail.
I think we were so excited about getting to Mammoth for a zero day we lost our heads and didn’t check our maps. We ended up having to backtrack cross-country over many a downed log. I even flipped over one of them, landing safely but with more scrapes and bruises here and there.
I take responsibility.
I rolled into Red’s tired, thirsty, bloody, and starving.
We are in Mammoth for a couple of days to resupply, refresh, repair and replace some gear.
It is so good.
