Hi All, I don't have time to do a real post. I made it to the High Sierras, really high! Summited Mt Whitney 14,505' and highest mountain in the lower 48 states, climbed over Forester Pass where the views were so stunning I cried. We earned those views, and it was overwhelming. Made it over Kearsarge Pass to resupply in Independence. Now well over 800 miles on our feet, and loving it. Please see photos on Instagram. I may flesh this out tonight, but library does not give much time on the computer.
