Well, my food for the next five days is packed, the morning taxi ride ordered and my stuff in the general area of my backpack. That's close though for tonight. I am very ready to get back on the trail, if only to get through this area so I can get to the Sierras. Even though the guidebook calls this the beginning of the Sierra chain I don't believe it. As soon as I can carry one liter of water instead of three, I won't believe I'm in the Sierras. This carrying so much water is getting very old.
