Day 81 - Meiss Cabin

It was a long and windy hike of mostly exposed and desert like conditions.

Although unlike the desert, we walked by a series of bright blue lakes.

And after descending, fields rich with vibrancy.

I met my Swiss friends at a small lake and they spoke of ending their hike in Tahoe so they can explore more of the west coast before heading back to Europe. 

Happy Trails my friends! 

Happy Trails my friends! 

Near the trailhead at Carson Pass, I met a couple who are friends with the person who leases Meiss Cabin over the winter to serve as a backcountry ski hut. 

He wasn't sure of the combination of the lock but gave me 4 digits to try and see if I could get a look at the inside of the historic cabin. 

The excitement carried me the remaining few miles of my 22+ mile day and here is a video of me reaching the cabin door.

The mosquitos were it in full force, probably protecting the cabin, so we set our tents up nearby and called it a night.
