We’ll also be dropping about 1000’ before we reach the lowest point and then up and out. We have lots of water and the wraps for lunch. We can take as long as we want for the hike and take as many pictures as we wish. Life is good and this is a moment to relish and remember.
We easily make our way down the smooth gravel trail. The moon is still up but headed toward the western horizon as we are treated to strange views as we wind through ancient Bristlecone Pines.
