Day 52 - Trout Fishin'

We started the day off with a round of Starbucks Vias and took turns surprising each other with edible gifts from our bear canisters.

The ladies headed off to start their day and Ben and I rigged up our trekking poles to try our hand at trout fishing. 

We did pretty well. 

We did pretty well. 

It was the perfect size!

And easy to clean.

I placed it on the still hot coals from our breakfast fire.

And flipped it halfway through.

It was soooo good.

Ben agreed.

We darn near ate the whole thing!

After lunch, we hiked on to guitar lake to join our friends for a sunrise summit of Mount Whitney. 

We hiked through a gorgeous meadow that was teeming with life.

I saw some deer peacefully grazing.

And a marmot foraging his dinner.

I arrived around dusk and slept beneath the stars.

Tomorrow, we rise before the sun.
