Mono Lake View from Ansel Adams Wilderness
Total distance: 9.1 miles
The night before my first trip of the year to the high country, I was unable to sleep. Excitement set in and I laid awake in bed like a child on Christmas Eve waiting for Santa. A quick glance at the clock showed that it was just before midnight. I should have been fast asleep by then because I wanted an early start. Instead of sleeping, my mind traced the route I would take. I ran through a mental list of things to add to the backpack; and I worried that my knee would give me problems. Two hours later after tossing, turning and fluffing the pillows, I finally drifted off to sleep.
