Day 63 – From Tentsite via Silver Pass to Tentsite, mile 898

June 22.

Got started on trail around 6.30am heading over Silver pass with about 10800 feet.

The last snow report was unclear, but I expected no major snow issues on Silver pass. The ascend was beautiful and gave me once again a lot of dejavues.

Coming up over the pass, I remembered the specialty of the pass – right after the official pass, there is actually a higher peak that needs to be crossed to continue.

We enjoyed to highest point for a while and celebrated with an energy bar – this being the last pass before Reds Meadows/Mammoth Lakes and with that before our town time.

The descent had a few short snowfields, but provided no challenges.

We came by several beautiful lakes before finding a place to pitch our tents, short before the 900 miles marker.
