Day 21. Up and up to Cascade Lake. July 11, 2016.

Day 21. Up and up to Cascade Lake. July 11, 2016.

6am to 5pm. 12.5 miles. Tuolumne Meadows Lodge to Cascade Lake.

Roper describes what we did today as “a horrendously long day.” It was long with LOTS of uphill but it was far from horrendous. I know the nero yesterday helped.

The "saddle" between Spuller and Maul Lakes. It sure felt like a pass.

Now where?

We camped at Cascade Lake. Sky Pilot Col is tomorrow.

I love the glacial blue lakes

We have another wonderful campsite and it feels awesome to be horizontal and off my feet.

    I wonder which switchback you are on now as you make your way up and up from Whitney Portal! Wanted to tell you how much I’ve enjoyed your SHR adventure. Your photos are stunning. With all that is going on in our world it gives me peace and comfort knowing such beauty exists.

    Why Not. Your trip was amazing to behold (from afar). It has been so much fun to follow along on your posts. Truly inspiring to see women in the wild doing great big adventures and having a blast. I want to be just like the three of you when I grow up.
