Day 2, Lk Morena to Cibbets Campground 32.6

After a disappointing night's rest I begrudgingly stepped off my picnic table bed and went about making breakfast and figuring out how best to stuff everything into my pack.

Lake Morena has evidently had … Continue reading Day 2, Lk Morena to Cibbets Campground 32.6
