We had decided we were going to take it easy into Tuolumne Meadows since we have to get a package at the post office and will arrive sometime Sunday. That means we would have to wait until Monday morning to get the package anyway, so no need to hurry.
We stayed in Reds Meadow until the afternoon, eating breakfast and lunch at the cafe. Pie came into Reds on pie slice number 9 and is leaving on Pie slice number 12, so we did good work here. We had a pretty modest goal of just 8 miles for the day so we weren’t too worried about the timing. We were worried about the weather, however, as rain is in the forecast for the next few days. Hoping for a dryer than forecasted stretch.
