Today we walked up the “Golden Staircase” up to Palisade Lakes and later crossed Mather Pass. This was our first day with more than 3,000 ft of climb. We fished at the first Palisade Lake and caught several trout. A ranger tells us al ong the way that the next few days a series of thunderstorms will come through and advises us to go over the passes early.
Right after we go over Mather pass we see lightening and hear thunder. It then rains a little bit on us. After sleeping for two weeks without a tent, Philipp and I are too lazy to set up the tent and only use the rain fly to stay dry.
