Full write-up (and more photos!) later. For now, just the highlights: Sleeping at the Peter Grubb hut; running for my life from mosquitoes the next morning; views from below of two mountains we've both previously climbed; slogging through snow patches on an 80-degree day; climbing Mount Lacey (as a 50-yard detour from the trail); kadyg getting a ride back to our car from Jackson Meadows Reservoir after developing knee problems; kadyg missing a hot, rocky descent during the last 11 miles, but using the time to play trail angel for some of the dozen thru-hikers in or near Sierra City; and this:

Also, happy birthday to me.
