We had a restful and relaxing zero day in Independence, CA. We shipped a box of supplies and added a few items from the gas station mini-mart. We also shipped back our ice axes, but kept our crampons for the high passes ahead.
In the small world department: we met the brother and nephews of our friend San Diego trail angel Girl Scout on the top of Kearsarge Pass.
