|Piute Creek (From Bridge) - Sierra Nevada 2004|
|Rocks, Piute Creek - Sierra Nevada 2004|
I arrived at Piute Creek at 2:20 PM. Thank the gods! A bridge! I walked over the bridge into Kings Canyon National Park and set up camp amidst the pines and abundant manzanita.
So. That was a 6 hour hike, somewhat longer than I'd like. Per my notes: "Very tough hike - ache all over. Keep the ibuprofen coming."
Still, I did find the energy to wander around with the Olympus C4040, marveling at the amount of photos that could be taken with one memory card.
