Aaron, the Corrupter, and I left Reds Meadow on Saturday morning. I'm already feeling better since I've started taking my meds. Aaron went about 8 miles with us then turned around to run back to Reds Meadow to get his car and drive around to Tuolumne. He will run out tomorrow to meet us. We made it to Clark Lakes trail to set up camp for the night at mile 920. Check out this crazy cloud pattern over Donohue Peak!
We met Sean and his sister Stephanie who were out doing a butterfly survey in the canyon.
Jerry had rented us camp site 33 (remember, my number ;-) for the night so we headed over to set up camp. Jerry and Antonia had brought lots of fruit for us (watermelon, cantaloupe, honeydew, mango, cherries, grapes) and Antonia had prepared several raw food dishes for me. She has been a raw foodist for several months which has helped her improve her health. She made some arugula pesto and sprouted lentil hummus plus lots more which were yummy. Thanks Antonia, you're awesome!
Lucid Moose showed up and is sharing our dinner and campsite for the night. After dinner we went to a talk at the campfire on bats in Yosemite. Later, Kurt and I crawled into our sleeping bag and talked with Antonia to catch up with her life since going raw and some about the Whole Foods crew.
As we snuggled in to sleep, I thought - it was a good day. My bladder problem is gone. My stomach is full of good food and had a nice visit with good friends. We are at mile 941.
