No bears last night (in TM backpackers camp) but we did put the tarp on, as the big clouds came in––then this morning, just wisps, but you never know.
I parted company with Gio at about one o’clock––he went up to Vogelsang. I thought I would get all the way up to Donahue Pass, but just at the end of the meadow, I met “Skot.”
Skot has been waiting for his partner for almost two days. They started out from Tuolomne, but then Manny, a.k.a., “Mystical Manny” vanished, leaving Skot to sit and ponder his whereabouts and wether to go on, or not.
