Day 58 – Mather Pass
834 total miles
Cold morning made worse by an icy stream we had to wade across 10 minutes after we started. My feet have never ached this much from cold. I started to wonder about frostbite. And then just when they started to thaw out we waded across another stream. Ouch!
Used microspikes on the way down. They were really nice to have because the snow was still firm. We got out of the snow before we were postholing. Nice.
Beautiful blue skies were back today. And lots of wildflowers. … spring is starting.
We met one other hiker today… White Water.
