Elevation gain/loss: 1834’/3547′
After getting to sleep around 8:30pm, I woke up at 5:45am and headed out on trail by 6:30am. The viewpoint overlooking Lake Tahoe was spectacular in the sunrise light.
The trail descended for a short time and then I climbed up towards Twin Peaks, where the TRT and PCT split. I then slowly descended towards town, passing by McCloud Falls and Pages Meadow.
I made quick miles and arrived in town at 11am. I wandered over to the grocery store for some drinks and a snack, and then walked over to the laundromat. I ate some ice cream while I waited, and my clothes are almost done. Then it’ll be catching a bus towards Kings Beach and the hostel.
