Mammoth Trip, 2018

Convict Lake Recovery Hike

We spent the day licking our wounds. Lookout Peak, mostly because of the tedious and treacherous descent, had been too intense an endeavour for a first day at altitude. Our second day was normally to be our first hard day.

Instead, we went by Mammoth Mountaineering Supply to replace Stella's disintegrating cycling gloves with leather belaying gloves, a grocery run to Vons, and then we did a pleasant, casual hike around Convict Lake. -F.
