Icing on cake

JMT DAY 27 - SUNSET AT CRABTREE CAMPGROUND

Sunset at Crabtree Campground

After reaching Wallace Creek, I don’t know what got into me, but I said to Henry, who had been waiting for me there, that I wanted to keep going. And we did.

From Wallace Creek to Crabtree Campground was an uphill battle, which I totally forgot till I was hiking it. But we couldn’t turn around. I couldn’t. So, we kept going.

It was late afternoon when we reached the campground, and I was glad that we had enough time to pitch our tents and to get water.

The sun was setting over the ridge behind the forest, so it wasn’t something that I could manage to capture. Instead, I turned around and pointed my camera at one of the peaks I saw. And as I expected, the sunset glow was beautifully cast on the slope. And the reflection of the glow in the stream was just the icing on the cake.
