There were only two water sources over today’s 33 miles, so the plan was to make it to the 2nd source to camp. The 5:40am departure was hastier than normal due to the swarming mosquitos…they are relentless!
I think this is Diamond Lake and Diamond Peak.
This is definitely Mt. Thielsen.
I had warnings about snow on trail in this area. Luckily it was just patchy for a couple miles.
Thielsen Creek was the first water source of the day at mile 16. I had to chase it down stream a bit because the upper part was covered in snow.
My favorite part of the day.
It was a popular lunch spot.
Hiker tan (dirt) lines.
North side of Mt. Thielsen.
Supposedly it’s all down hill to Canada 🇨🇦
The spur trail to the Spring was a popular camp spot tonight.
It was a 14 hour day on the trail with stops.
I’m ready for bed!
