Goeth Lake

One from Thursday, my last day on the Sierra High Route for a while (while I wait for the Rough Fire to fizzle out). I was in a rush and over-confident over this massive field of gigantic talus, and I took a serious fall. I bruised my left pinky finger and almost lost my water and spoon. I was so thankful it wasn’t worse; at the moment my legs went over my head I was certain I would at least get knocked unconscious as these boulders were on average 10 feet across and down. I need chiropractic but otherwise I’m fine. But let me say it again: this route is extremely difficult and super hairy at times. I’m happy to have only 30 miles left to complete, and don’t plan on doing it again. I’m looking at more difficult things. Such is my style. 😉
