Destination: Kennedy Meadows
Starting Location: Tributary south fork Kern River
Today’s Miles: 4.80
Trip Miles: 705.50
Tributary south fork Kern (700.4, 5916) to Kennedy Meadows Campground (705.2, 6150) ascent (787) descent (525) NERO
Woke up this morning in time to meet Scott Williamson who is attempting a repeat of his calendar year yo yo (Mexico to Canada to Mexico). He is 700 miles out in 19 days by averaging 40 miles per day. We had a nice visit & were in awe at his ability to go those distances without taking any zeros. After he moved on Popsicle commented that he had a thousand questions for Scott & noted that must be what it is like for day hikers who want to ask long distance hikers questions.
We managed to get misplaced before we ultimately found the trail prior to meeting up with go-BIG Daddy & the go-BIG support mobile. Dad has been an enormous help these last several weeks and particularly so here at Kennedy. He had gone to the store for us & had transported all of our Sierrian gear. We spent the entire afternoon getting organized with new gear including bear resistant containers, ice axes, crampons & cold weather gear.
