Day 26. Hot Springs and Moraine Lake. July 16, 2016.

6am to 5pm.
Wallace Creek to Moraine Lake
19.4 miles

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.

Down, down to the Kern River

One of the few FLAT sections

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.
