Bible joins me for breakfast in the “Village”, a ski resort area of town.
We take the earliest shuttle up to Horseshoe Lake, arriving at 9:30AM.
Bible is not leaving today, just making a practice run.
The day is very warm and sunny, with mosquitos and gnats present in places, and many deer wandering around. How different from the cold snowy trail of two days ago. The Devil’s Postpile shows an unusual geologic formation that looks like a huge pile of wooden posts. The trail goes as low as 7.4k elevation, climbing to 8.8k on the way to the next pass tomorrow at 10.2k.
