Day 89: June 30th
Dicks Lake to Mile 1129
Today was a relatively pleasant day of hiking as the Pacific Crest Trail travels west of Lake Tahoe. We were occasionally treated to lovely views of the very blue Lake Tahoe as we hiked.
The trail mostly stayed in the woods and there were fewer lakes and streams. We began treating our water again when we resumed hiking yesterday, just to be cautious – the water levels are already low.
There seem to be few good campsites (maybe because of storms leaving blowdowns and rockfalls) and we are camped with 3 other hikers here. It is only 7:20 p.m. but everyone is already quiet.
