All packed up and ready to leave Sierra View; on toward Mississippi Lake!
Mississippi Lake is about 12 miles away, more or less on the other side of the second ridge in the photo. I'll get out toward the third ridge later in the trip.
It's going to be a long day. From here at about 2800 feet, I'll drop down to about 1200 feet at Poverty Flat, then climb over that lower ridge to about 1750 feet, then back down to about 1200 feet at Los Cruzeros, then up and over Willow Ridge, whose high point is around 2600 feet.
It's already almost 13h, so I'm off to a rather late start, but I don't care. I'm on vacation and enjoying not being in a hurry for a change.
