6am to 5pm.
Wallace Creek to Moraine Lake
We have met several people for whom this hike is a big deal…. 1st backpacking trip, flew out from Ohio for this. And we are nonplussed so far. It’s a lot of effort for not much. The Sierra High Route ruined me.
We ate lunch at the Kern Hot Springs. The cement tub has a plug which we put in as soon as we got there. Hot, clean water! Heavenly.
The coolest thing of this trail so far is the haunting call of a loon across the lake.
