Almost half way
Its the 4th of July and we are in south Lake Tahoe. Tonight we will go to the lake to see one of Americas most impressive fireworks. We didn't really plan to be here on Independence Day, but resupply, laundry and shower pulled us back into town.
Since the last post, we have been hiking through the last bits of Yosemite and left this beautiful piece of nature. Because methinks had a car at tuolomne, because his girlfriend was visiting him, we had the option to get a ride to Yosemite valley. There we saw very beautiful things like el Capitain and Half Dome, but it probably wasn't that impressive as John Muir experienced it. It was so full of people and cars that we couldn't enjoy the scenery so much as you can when you are alone. But still, they are gorgeous.
In Tuolomne we said goodbye to Methinks and Tutone. Tutone is trying to heal her plenta feciatus, a foot problem. Methinks was staying with girlfriend for two more days and after that decided to take a week more of rest because his back was girding pretty bad. So from than mi942, we are walking with just the two of us. And it actually quite nice again. Less crazy funny people though ;)
In between there and here we went to a country full of thunderstorms, looooooots of Mosquitos, bears, deer... The worst Mosquitos were only two days but they are one of te most innoying creatures on earth. They got us to hike very quickly though!
The terrain is less difficult now, so we can get in more miles. We try to do 25 now, and might try 30 after south Lake Tahoe. With this we hope to 'earn' some extra zero days and get on time to destination Canada.
But now first dinner and fireworks. Walking we will do tomorrow.
