Snarly traffic at the pass finally did what the weather never could this season. It brought TNAB to a full stop. As a result, Dress for Success! was split into separate roaming bands of hikers. A few tagged Abiel and then headed for Silver. A couple of tie-clad fellas tagged just Silver. And the remaining brightly colored contingent wandered the PCT south to Lodge Lake. Not your normal TNAB adventure, but still a great time. And no rain!

Pissed off wasps
and whistle pigs
Alpine lakes
and sunset jigs
Beers and crackers
laughs galore
and a midnight nosh
at the House of Pour.

 

Stahp!

It looked to be wet
And the sky was a threat
But the higher we hiked
The more that we liked.

Our pace was insane
And the rocks a real pain
But the views were a sight
And the sunset a delight.

Jackets were sought
And beer foam was shot
But soon we did split
On trail barely lit.

Fast to the junction
Fast to the cars
Fast to the Pour House
To dig into thars.

Special Thanks to Guest Trip Songwriter Dr. John:

I been in the right place
But it must have been the wrong time
I’d have said the right thing
But I must have used the wrong line
I’d a took the right road
But I must have took a wrong turn
Would have made the right move
But I made it at the wrong time
I been on the right road
But I must have used the wrong car
My head was in a good place
And I wonder what it’s bad for
