Backpacking in Inyo -Day 2

Actually hiking

sunny 70 °F

Day 2 of our trip and we are finally going to hike.

We were supposed to be camping by the Cottonwood Creek but now are just there. Justin left the party before us with his boys and met Elias and Charlotte at a designated stream crossing. Last to leave were Dale and I; we’d stayed behind to clean up camp and pack up all of the things Justin couldn’t get into his pack. IMG_8285.jpg IMG_8288.jpg

As we were packing up several “Search and Rescue” vehicles came into the area, one parking area became a command post with a trailer filled with heavy duty radios. We asked one sheriff about who was missing and he told us a man who’d tried to scale Mt. Langley. As Justin is hoping to scale this Mt. on Saturday I’m a little worried. IMG_8289.jpg

There was some concern as we didn’t know exactly where the camp so in preplan we designated Charlotte and Elias to drop their packs at the new camp and come back to guide us. It was a welcome relief when they returned and even nicer for me when Elias took my pack and ran off up the trail. You think I’m kidding about running? Well he ran! IMG_8290.jpg

The same log was lying across the stream leading to the camp, a little more worn but I walked across It was fun to be back after 12 years. Since it was late afternoon we had to start dinner right away and set up our camp.
