13.9 km. Sunshine Village to Egypt Lake Shelter
We took the 8:30am free shuttle back to Sunshine Village and the gondola back up the mountain. Then it was beautiful high alpine walking with lots of wildflowers.
A couple of passes later we were at the Egypt Lake Shelter. I booked the shelter because all the campsites were full. It reminds me of the basic huts in New Zealand. We didn’t have far to go and took a break at every opportunity but still got here at 3:30. One bonus is that there are tables and benches inside which is a treat. There are quite a few mosquitos outside so we are staying inside.
Beautiful flowers and country side. Too bad about the mosquitos tho – bummer.
Your vistas just keep getting better and better.
I like everything about it, but the skeeters. I’m heading out next week to the Sierras on the Western side, hopefully they’ve all hatched, lived, and now all died!
Takes my breath away!
Wildflowers, big mountains, views a go go . . . LOVE!
