Back in the desert where I belong. // Our real last day. We slept in until 8AM! Didn’t leave camp until 10AM! Flew down the next few miles appreciating the views and the downhill. When we got to the edge of the Whitney Zone @chelseadier was waiting for us! She had an avocado and cheese in her backpack! We hiked the last three miles out yell-laughing about everything we’d done over the last three weeks. Then. Then we got to the trailhead. And Chelsea pulled out a cooler with sodas, potato chips, grapes, raspberries, homemade chocolate chip cookies, kombucha, rosé, and probably something else I’m forgetting. It was overwhelming in the best way possible. Then we showered in town and ate pizza and beer! Then we drove back out to my favorite public lands and camped one more night because the tent was home at this point. This was one month ago and I haven’t stopped eating cookies since. JMT adventure complete, series over.
