30 Aug Day 131 – Zero in Lone Pine
At mile 788.5.
Here is a view of Mt Whitney from a booth at McDonald’s in Lone Pine. Whitney is the peak just to the left of the lamppost. Because it is set back, it isn’t prominent on the skyline above Lone Pine.
I stayed at the Dolly Villa again and the big excitement of the day was a purchase of a new Montbell down parka. The post office lost my bounce box with my warm clothing and the nights are getting colder.
(Note: Months later I received my bounce box at my home in Roswell, Georgia. It wasn’t the postal service’s mistake. I had thought I sent my bounce box to Stehekin. I had actually sent it to Skykomish.) 🙁
