Mountains, Marmots, Miles!

South Lake Tahoe - Mile 1092 - Jul 25th, 2016

South Lake Tahoe! Mile 1092!
Through the Sierras we've been! Up and over mountains and mountain passes, strolled through dreamy alpine meadows and mosquito swatted our way quickly over streams, brooks, creeks, rivers and glacial lakes! Sadly, my computer time is quite limited, so I'm hoping the pictures here can paint a better picture of this crazy adventure up till now! I'm continuing from here with the amazing Mighty Mouse, and the awesome Brad will pick up with us again around Sierra City, in about 5 days. We've had a great rest here in Tahoe, but now the big miles and work begins! We are in a race for Canada. We are all keeping our fingers crossed we can walk fast enough before the snow arrives in Washington. Right now, our projected date to arrive in Manning Park (the Northern Terminus) is October 11th. Big hopes for a late winter!
The Sierras were a paradise I don't have a colourful enough vocabulary to describe! Was jaw-dropping gobsmacked daily by it's beauty, and absolutely tickled by the adorable marmots!
The days felt long and tough. I am definitely feeling the stress of the terrain on my body and often dream of just not moving for a day or two, but continue we do!
I so wish to write more and take you along on this awesome, crazy, exhausting, painful, expanding journey, but it's now 8pm, and we are heading back to the trail first thing tomorrow morning. Please see pics attached....I hope they tell at least part of the story I wish I had time to write here.
Love and hugs,
Stacy (Share Bear)
