Glad to have made it as far as Kennedy Meadows! We are now 702 miles from the Mexican border, which means we are over a quarter of the way to Canada. Nearly through with deserts, water shortages and rattle snakes (maybe), and we are about to enter the Sierra Nevada and the Yosemite National Park. Mountains, snow, river crossings and bears. Just picked up our bear canisters (for storing food) and our ice axes so our packs are now several pounds heavier, but feeling excited about setting off tomorrow.
Apologies for the short, rushed entry but internet access is very limited, hence no photos. Hopefully when we get to Bishop in about a week we will get a chance to upload some photos and post another blog entry.
