10/13/12, Big Pine, CA (Coord. N. 37 deg, 05.843 min; W. 118 deg, 15.170 min)
Today was a nice day of travel with a gentle sloping downward hill, beautiful weather and a nice pulling team. I traveled from my roadside campsite, just south of Bishop to a creek side camp five miles south of Big Pine, CA.
Early in the morning, a warm front passed through, rapidly warming the cool morning air. Being prepared for everything but more heat, I changed into a set of long johns this morning in preparation for another cool day. Of course, this act alone resulted in warmer temperatures. Next time, I’ll try putting the long johns on over my clothes, so when I guess wrong I can easily strip them off!
