Our hike today was a short 10 miles from Spooner Lake to Marlette Lake Campground. We arrived at 1:30pm and decided with all this downtime in camp we'd go to bed early and get up at 3am to hike to a nearby summit the next morning to watch the sunrise.
This early morning plan will allow us to beat the heat and be back in Sparks, NV in time for the D&D game hosted by our friends (the place where we're staying in Nevada).
While we relax at Spooner Lake picnic area (after some hot hiking and then cooling off in the lake) enjoying the shade and easy access to potable water, @mypictograph does an oil pastel sketch of the woods, while @brienne and myself wild harvest pine nuts from the large Jeffrey Pine cones.
