21 July 2020 Evolution Lake to Florence Lake Trail (14.6 miles, +800/-3,900 feet).
Today was another monsoon day in the Sierra, but we were far from any peaks and our only job was down, down, down, so we stayed dry. We made great time (Bee’s Knees loves “bonus miles!”) and set ourselves up nicely to get our resupply at Muir Trail Ranch tomorrow.
The air was calm as we rounded Evolution Lake this morning. It was perfect hiking weather to enjoy not only the lake but a vast mountain called “The Hermit.”
