Crossed the snow free Kearsarge pass and went down to the Onion valley trailhead where we got a ride to Independence to pick up a resupply and then to Lone Pine to stay a night at the Dow Villa hotel. The marmots we hoping for some food, but we regretfully had to inform them that we were out. Tomorrow we will head back up over Kearsarge with 10lbs more food. Our plan is to go 6 days to Muir trail ranch to resupply, then 3 days to Red’s meadows, then 3 days to Tuolumne where we will the catch a bus to mammoth for a much needed day or two of rest. Mammoth is likely to be or next cell service in 2ish weeks.
