      ... it was all quiet in the RV until we got to the valley floor. Looking back we could see some snow still lying on the mountain sides. A sign told us however we were still at about 6,000 ft but it pretty much stayed that way for the rest of the day believe it or not.

      After a few more miles we saw Mono Lake before us, we pulled over at a petrol station and had some lunch and planned the next leg.

      My excellent navigation skills came into play ...

      ... on this part of the road to the state line shortly passed Harvey's Casino Resort. Think this area has built up a lot.

      2:19pm 89 north .... no guard on my side in places and lake below-- way below. Scary with hairpin turns and down to 10mph. Right on 28 heading towards Tahoe City. At King's Beach we go left on 267 to the 80 and right on 80 -- still 31 miles to Reno.

A quick dip in the motel jacuzzi (and the in the pool for Pete - I wasn't quite brave enough, chilly!) and out for tea to a pizza place just down the road. Early night tonight as will try and get on the road early tomorrow....might have to fit in another visit to Erick Schat's on the way though! ...

      ... It was a steep, grueling trail. Every turn would lead to more uphill, in addition to it being very rocky and technical in places. There were some large steps too, where you had to use a lot of leg power to get over. We were both exhausted. This trail was brutal. I would call this more of an advanced backpacking trail. I had chosen a trail that was too hard. In addition, carrying the weight of the backpack really slowed us down and made hiking astronomically more difficult.

      ... Way from the campground. I thought for sure we would. There were less stars than I thought, maybe due to the smoke that was in the atmosphere from a big wildfire? Not sure.

      I ended up spending hours looking up at the stars that night, due to having insomnia. I just could not get to sleep. I had this blow up pillow that was awkward and uncomfortable. Also, I was sketched out on insects getting in my sleeping bag, so I was sure to keep it shut. But I felt ...
