On our way back out of the back country. Feeling much stronger than when we went in. We'd ate all the food (tuna fish, beans, etc), so the pack was lighter (the bears helped with that somewhat, too). Good thing, cuz the pack out is all uphill, which gets me huffing & puffing. We used herbal stimulants, Advil - anything to take the edge off. I'd climbed that mountain in the background a couple days prior. That's the Tuolumne river behind me.
