June 26 (Day 56)

Squaw Lake to Red’s Meadow and the town of Mammoth Lakes (886.5 to 906.6)

Daily miles: 20.1

No pass today, just a 1500 foot elevation gain day.  Easy.  Town vision, food vision, walking fast and thinking about what I’m going to eat (I’m making pasta at the hostel) and downing a box of cookies.  Mammoth is off trail, like most towns on the PCT, so I take a shuttle and then catch a ride with some people who work at the ski resort (Mammoth is a ski town), and get to the hostel in time to shop and eat and fall asleep
